The decision of when to deliver a patient for medical or obstetric complication directly affects the neonatal outcome. When the fetus is in danger due to suspected utero-placental insufficiency, the decision to deliver is thought to benefit the neonate. However, the opposite may be true when a normally developing fetus needs to be delivered for a maternal indication such as a persistently bleeding placenta praevia. These decisions are made daily by obstetric providers. The following is a review… Expand
Neonatal outcomes following late preterm birth
TLDR
The focus of perinatal research for many years has been very preterm and extremely preterm delivery, since the likelihood and severity of adverse neonatal outcomes are highest within this group. Expand
Avoiding late preterm deliveries to reduce neonatal complications: an 11-year cohort study
TLDR
Efforts should be made to avoid non-spontaneous LPT births in order to reduce neonatal complications, particularly after non-evidence-indicated LPT birth. Expand
Perinatal outcomes of spontaneous and medically-indicated late preterm infants
TLDR
Both spontaneous and medically-indicated late-preterm infants are at risk for perinatal morbidity and specific strategies of care for these infants need to be improved. Expand
[Antenatal corticosteroid therapy and late preterm infant morbidity and mortality].
TLDR
The finding suggests that the administration of antenatal corticosteroids to patients at risk of 34-36 weeks delivery could significantly reduce the cost and acute morbidity associated with late preterm birth. Expand
The late preterm infant
TLDR
A review aims to identify some of the key themes in the available evidence for late preterm babies and consider how this may impact upon health outcomes for these babies now and in future life. Expand
Antenatal corticosteroid therapy and late preterm infant morbidity and mortality
TLDR
The finding suggests that the administration of antenatal corticosteroids to patients at risk of 34–36 weeks delivery could significantly reduce the cost and acute morbidity associated with late preterm birth. Expand
Impact of the new guidelines on the management of premature rupture of membranes for the prevention of late preterm birth: an 11-year retrospective study
TLDR
Adoption of new guidelines for the management of PPROM will prevent a considerable number of LPT births and help decrease the adverse effects and potential disability associated with late preterm infants. Expand
Maternal and Perinatal Determinants of Late Hospital Discharge Among Late Preterm Infants; A 5-Year Cross-Sectional Analysis
TLDR
LPIs are at high risk for developing prematurity-related morbidities and the duration of their initial hospital stay can be anticipated based on certain predisposing maternal and perinatal factors. Expand
The Burden of Provider-Initiated Preterm Birth and Associated Factors: Evidence from the Brazilian Multicenter Study on Preterm Birth (EMIP)
TLDR
The decision-making process relative to the choice of provider-initiated birth is complex, and many factors should be elucidated to improve strategies for its prevention, including evidence-based guidelines on proper management of the corresponding clinical conditions. Expand
Risk factors and outcomes of preterm birth

Background: Children born preterm are at increased risk for a number of chronic diseases, including cerebral palsy and asthma. Asthma is usually categorised among the atopic diseases, but whetherExpand

Timing of indicated late-preterm and early-term birth.
TLDR
The goal of the workshop was to synthesize the available information regarding conditions that may result in medically indicated late-preterm and early-term births to determine the potential risks and benefits of delivery compared with continued pregnancy, determine the optimal gestational age for delivery of affected pregnancies when possible, and inform future research.

Indicated preterm birth for fetal anomalies.
  • S. Craigo
  • Medicine
  • Seminars in perinatology
  • 2011
TLDR
For most pregnancies complicated by anomalies, there is no change to obstetrical management regarding timing of delivery, and for those that may benefit from late preterm or early-term delivery, variability exists such that each management plan should be individualized. Expand
A randomised trial of timed delivery for the compromised preterm fetus: short term outcomes and Bayesian interpretation.
TLDR
The lack of difference in overall mortality suggests that clinicians participating in this trial were on average prepared to randomize at about the correct equivocal threshold between delivery and delay, however, there was insufficient evidence to convince enthusiasts for either immediate or delayed delivery that they were wrong. Expand
Aggressive or Expectant Management for Patients With Severe Preeclampsia Between 28–34 Weeks' Gestation: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Fifty-eight women with severe preeclampsia between 28-34 weeks' gestation qualified for a randomized controlled trial to establish whether elective delivery 48 hours after administration of betamethasone or delivery later as indicated by maternal or fetal condition was more beneficial to maternal and fetal outcome. Expand
Induction of labour versus expectant management in women with preterm prelabour rupture of membranes between 34 and 37 weeks (the PPROMEXIL-trial)
TLDR
This trial will provide evidence as to whether induction of labour after preterm prelabour rupture of membranes is an effective and cost-effective strategy to reduce the risk of neonatal sepsis. Expand

TLDR
Careful monitoring of fetal growth and well-being, combined with appropriate timing and mode of delivery, can best ensure a favorable outcome. Expand
Late-Preterm Birth: Does the Changing Obstetric Paradigm Alter the Epidemiology of Respiratory Complications?
TLDR
Reduced respiratory morbidity associated with decreased births after 40 weeks were offset by the adverse respiratory effect of increased cesarean delivery rates and increased late-preterm birth rates over the 9-year study period. Expand

OBJECTIVE We sought to review the risks and benefits of expectant management of severe preeclampsia remote from term, and to provide recommendations for expectant management, maternal and fetalExpand

Antibiotics for preterm premature rupture of membranes.
TLDR
The use of antibiotics following preterm prelabour rupture of membranes (pPROM) is associated with a statistically significant reduction in maternal infection after delivery prior to discharge and there are fewer data relating to specific antibiotics. Expand
