Technological advances and research are improving survival rates of micro-preemies. This is resulting in an increased understanding of many interconnected conditions and diseases, including pulmonary vascular disease, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and pulmonary hypertension. Dr. Dany Weisz walks us through the current understanding and how this is impacting research, treatment, and outcomes.
