AB  - BACKGROUND: Emerging evidence indicates that infants who were born between 37 and
      38 weeks of gestation are at higher risk of adverse long-term neurodevelopmental 
      outcomes. Yet little is known about the auditory neural maturation during the
      first year of their life. AIM: To compare the development of auditory brainstem
      response in early term (ET, 37-38 weeks gestational age, GA) and full term (FT,
      39-41weeksGA) infants. METHODS: 126 infants received ABR testing at 6 weeks. 107 
      of them returned for the second assessment at 9 months, among which, 93 completed
      the ABR recordings. Comparison of the ABR variables were made depending on
      gestational age. RESULTS: Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to identify
      the differences in ABR outcomes between two groups. After controlling for
      confounders, latencies for wave III, V and I-III, III-V and I-V intervals were
      prolonged in ET group compared with FT group at 6 weeks (all p<0.03). ABR
      parameters of both groups developed as the infants got older. At 9 months, ET
      infants remain showing the longer wave V latency and I-V interval (all p<0.02)
      than FT infants. CONCLUSION: During early postnatal life, ET has a different
      pattern of functional auditory brainstem development comparing with FT infants.
      The prolonged auditory conduction time suggests less mature of the central
      auditory system in ET infants before 9 months.
