Abstract

Background: Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is the most important gastrointestinal emergency in the neonatal period and early detection is very important for its management. Bowel ischemia-hypoperfusion is one of the main etiological factors. In the literature, a few studies have focused on arterial Doppler ultrasonography (DUS) features of splanchnic arteries; however, their clinical implications are not clear.
