Abstract

Metabolic bone disease in the growing premature infant is an important disorder owing to inadequate intake of calcium or phosphorus over an extended period of time. Prevention of serious bone disease is an important goal in the care of the VLBW infant. Attempts to reproduce intrauterine bone accretion rates in intrauterine life may be unnecessary and may result in potential complications.
