  • BACKGROUND The publication of Swiss guidelines for the care of infants at the limit of viability (22-25 completed weeks) was followed by increased survival rates in the more mature infants (25 completed weeks). At the same time, considerable centre-to-centre (CTC) differences were noted. OBJECTIVES To examine the trend of survival rates of borderline viable infants over a 10-year-period and to further explore CTC differences. DESIGN Population-based, retrospective cohort study.
