Evaluation of blood flow velocity to determine the effect of fortifiers on intestinal hemodynamics

Aim: This study aimed to evaluate the effects of human milk fortifier (HMF) formulas on feeding intolerance and intestinal hemodynamics using superior mesenteric artery blood flow velocity (SMA-BFV). Material and Method: The study was conducted on 36 infants born at a gestational age ranging from 26 to 326 weeks. Doppler-ultrasound (USG) was used to measure SMA-BFV. Demographic characteristics, the amount…
