Abstract: We describe the postnatal weight gain, linear and head growth trends of surviving preterm infants from 2005 to 2017. Multicentre cohort study, including surviving preterm infants Weight gain, linear growth and head growth were slightly higher in 2015-2017 than in 2005-2008: 12.2 ± 2.6 to 13.1 ± 2.5 g/kg/day, 0.98 ± 0.6 to 1.03 ± 0.6 cm/week and 0.76 ± 0.2 to 0.77 ± 0.3 cm/week, respectively. It was associated with a decreased fall in weigh, length and head circumference z-scores from birth to discharge (-1.32 ± 0.9 to -1.01 ± 0.84, -1.38 ± 1.2 to -1.18 ± 1.2 and -0.41 ± 1.2 to -0.33 ± 1.3, respectively). Postnatal growth restriction remained a common complication of prematurity despite some increment over the last years. Growth disproportionality seemed to be worsening as weight gain was increased more than linear growth.
