Objectives To compare mortality and serious morbidity rates between outborn and inborn livebirths at 22–27 weeks' gestation. Design Population-based cohort study. Setting Victoria, Australia. Patients Livebirths at 22–27 weeks' gestation free of major malformations in 2010–2011. Interventions Outcome data for outborn (born outside a tertiary perinatal centre) infants compared with inborn (born in a tertiary perinatal centre) infants were analysed by logistic regression, adjusted for gestational… 

Short and long-term outcomes of outborn vs. inborn infants <32 weeks in Western Australia: A cohort study of infants born between 2005 and 2018.

Outborn preterm infants <32 weeks in WA have increased odds of mortality, and combined brain injury than those inborn, and long-term outcome results is likely to be affected by incomplete follow-up data.

Survival and causes of death in extremely preterm infants in the Netherlands

Implementation of the 2010 guideline resulted as expected in increased NICU admissions rate and postnatal survival of infants born at 24 weeks’ GA and a shift in cause of death was seen from respiratory insufficiency towards necrotising enterocolitis and sepsis.

Mortality and morbidity in outborn extremely low birth weight neonates: a retrospective analysis

Outborn EL BW patients had increased odds of late onset sepsis compared with inborn ELBW patients after controlling for covariates that differed significantly between these two cohorts.

Outcomes of outborn very-low-birth-weight infants in Japan

Outborn delivery of VLBWIs was associated with an increased risk of severe IVH, and there were no significant differences in Apgar scores, oxygen rates at delivery, intubation ratio at delivery or mortality.

Outcomes of outborn extremely preterm neonates admitted to a NICU with respiratory distress

Outborn neonates had poorer survival than inborns and higher rates of NEC, severe IVH, tROP and PVL, while inborn-outborn disparities in mortality were reduced over the study period.

Impact of Outborn/Inborn Birth Status of Infants Born at <29 Weeks of Gestation on Neurodevelopmental Impairment: A Nationwide Cohort Study in Korea

In preterm infants, the location of birth may be a key factor influencing short- and long-term outcomes and nationwide regional perinatal systems need to be improved and standardized.

The frequency of severe intraventricular hemorrhage, necrotizing enterocolitis or focal intestinal perforation, and cognitive impairment was significantly higher in outborn infants, suggesting outborn/inborn birth status may play a role in short- and long-term outcomes of extremely preterm infants.

Trends in survival, perinatal morbidities and two-year neurodevelopmental outcomes in extremely low-birthweight infants over four decades.

Active care and survival rates in ELBW children have increased dramatically since 1979 without large changes in neonatal morbidities, and the numbers of survivors free of major neurodevelopmental disability have increased more over time than those with major disability.



Perinatal outcomes for extremely preterm babies in relation to place of birth in England: the EPICure 2 study

Survival was significantly enhanced following birth in level 3 services, particularly those with high activity; this was not at the cost of increased neonatal morbidity.

Between-hospital variation in treatment and outcomes in extremely preterm infants.

Differences in hospital practices regarding the initiation of active treatment in infants born at 22, 23, or 24 weeks of gestation explain some of the between-hospital variation in survival and survival without impairment among such patients.

One-year survival of extremely preterm infants after active perinatal care in Sweden.

1-year survival of infants born alive at 22 to 26 weeks of gestation in Sweden was 70% and ranged from 9.8% at 22 weeks to 85% at 26 weeks, and lower risk of infant death was associated with tocolytic treatment and surfactant treatment.

Survival and morbidity of preterm children born at 22 through 34 weeks' gestation in France in 2011: results of the EPIPAGE-2 cohort study.

A substantial improvement in survival in France for newborns born at 25 through 31 weeks' gestation was accompanied by an important reduction in severe morbidity, but survival remained rare before 25 weeks, and improvement at extremely low gestational age may be possible.

Intensity of Perinatal Care for Extremely Preterm Infants: Outcomes at 2.5 Years

Proactive perinatal care decreased mortality without increasing the risk of NDI at 2.5 years’ CA in EPT infants and a proactive approach based on optimistic expectations of a favorable outcome is justified.

Survival of extremely premature babies in a geographically defined population: prospective cohort study of 1994-9 compared with 2000-5

Survival of infants born at 24 and 25 weeks of gestation has significantly increased and there was no improvement in survival at this gestation, although over half the cohort of infants Born at 23 weeks was admitted to neonatal intensive care.

Investigating the variations in survival rates for very preterm infants in 10 European regions: the MOSAIC birth cohort

There are wide variations in the survival rates to discharge from neonatal intensive care for very preterm deliveries and in the timing of death across the MOSAIC regions.

Outcomes of Infants Born at 22 and 23 Weeks’ Gestation

Infants born at 22 and 23 weeks’ gestation were at higher risk of death or NDI than infants at born at 24 weeks, however, outcomes were improved compared with those in previous studies.
