BPD may be associated with chronic respiratory difficulties, prolonged and recurrent hospitalization, an increased incidence of neurodevelopmental disabilities, growth restriction, and death. Controversies regarding the cause of BPD are important to resolve in an attempt to develop strategies for prevention.
