Prophylactic treatment with indomethacin was shown to reduce the risk of severe IVH in the 1990s.

(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8134206)

However, follow-up studies later showed that indomethacin prophylaxis did not improve mortality or neurodevelopmental outcomes. These findings are summarized in a Cochrane review from 2010.

The 99nicu Poll for June and July is about such NSAID prophylaxis and whether you have and/or still use it.
