    Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), especially PDA with sepsis, has been reported as a risk factor for feed intolerance in preterm neonates. In this study, the start to full feeds interval was found to be longest in preterm neonates (<= 28 weeks' gestation) with sepsis, followed by that in preterm neonates with sepsis and PDA, and in those with PDA alone.
