The trials and tribulations of percutaneous coronary intervention in hospitals without on-site CABG surgery.

Abstract

aries of preterm birth may seem simple to clinicians who do not work in perinatal medicine, but they are not. The “20-week line” and “liveborn vs stillborn” classifications are found in the vital statistics infrastructure and in the thinking of many obstetrics practitioners, researchers, and the general public. As the SCRN work highlights, pregnancies involving fetal death near the limit of viability, including those before 20 weeks, share important commonalities with pregnancies resulting in early preterm birth. As such, the reports from the SCRN will not only further the understanding of stillbirth but should also encourage the need to reframe thinking about how to address the problem of spontaneous preterm birth and the associated racial/ethnic disparities.
