An international classification of retinopathy of prematurity. The Committee for the Classification of Retinopathy of Prematurity.

Because of modern life-support systems capable of keeping tiny premature infants alive, retinopathy of prematurity has recurred. No classification system currently available adequately describes the observations of the disease being made today. A new classification system, the work of 23 ophthalmologists from 11 countries, is presented in an attempt to meet this need. It emphasizes the location and the extent of the disease in the retina as well as its stages. The term "plus" is employed with the stage to denote progressive vascular incompetence. A computer-compatible diagram for recording the results of the examination employing the new classification system is furnished.
