Trends in Care Practices, Morbidity, and Mortality of Extremely Preterm Neonates, 1993-2012.
TLDR
Among extremely preterm infants born at US academic centers over the last 20 years, changes in maternal and infant care practices and modest reductions in several morbidities were observed, although bronchopulmonary dysplasia increased.
Changes in Survival and Neonatal Morbidity in Infants with a Birth Weight of 750 g or Less
TLDR
Mortality of infants with a BW of ≤750 g is high, but decreased over time, especially in small for gestational age (SGA) infants.
Trends in Perinatal Practices and Neonatal Outcomes of Very Low Birth Weight Infants during a 16-year Period at NEOCOSUR Centers
Objective To describe trends in mortality, major morbidity, and perinatal care practices of very low birth weight infants born at NEOCOSUR Neonatal Network centers from January 1, 2001, through
Survival rate of very low birth weight infants over a quarter century (1994 -2019): A single-institution experience.

TLDR
The survival rate of VLBW infants had improved significantly over the past 26 years, attributed mainly to the improved survival of ELBW infants (<1000 grams) and gestational age of ≤26 weeks.
Neonatal Outcomes of Extremely Preterm Infants From the NICHD Neonatal Research Network
TLDR
Although the majority of infants with GAs of ≥24 weeks survive, high rates of morbidity among survivors continue to be observed.
Perinatal factors associated with neonatal mortality in very low birth weight infants: a multicenter study.
TLDR
Major perinatal factors were identified in association with neonatal mortality in VLBW infants, and the impact of antenatal corticosteroid use in the NEOCOSUR Network was demonstrated.
Mortality and Neonatal Morbidity Among Infants 501 to 1500 Grams From 2000 to 2009
TLDR
Mortality and major neonatal morbidity in survivors decreased for infants with birth weight 501 to 1500 g between 2000 and 2009, however, at the end of the decade, a high proportion of these infants still either died or survived after experiencing ≥1 major neonnatal morbidity known to be associated with both short- and long-term adverse consequences.
Mortality and morbidity of very low birth weight and extremely low birth weight babies in neonatal period
TLDR
It was found that morbidities such as RDS, HIE, shock and hypoglycemia are significantly higher in ELBW babies as compared to VLBW babies.
Trends in morbidity and mortality among very-low-birth-weight infants from 2003 to 2008 in Japan
TLDR
Mortality of very-low-birth-weight infants born from 2003 through 2008 decreased significantly over the 6-y study period, and decreasing morbidity is essential for further improvement in the outcomes in VLBW infants.

Very low birth weight outcomes of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network, January 1993 through December 1994.
TLDR
The mortality rate for infants weighing between 501 and 1500 g at birth continues to decline and is accompanied by an increase in medical morbidity, while there are interactions between birth weight, gestational age, sex, and survival rates.
Trends in mortality and morbidity for very low birth weight infants, 1991-1999.
TLDR
Major changes in both obstetric and neonatal care during the 1990s were associated with decreases in mortality and morbidity for VLBW infants during the first half of the decade, but since 1995, no additional improvements in mortality or morbidity have been seen, ending a decades-long trend of improving outcomes for these infants.
Longitudinal Growth of Hospitalized Very Low Birth Weight Infants
TLDR
Appropriate-for-gestational age infants who survived to hospital discharge without developing chronic lung disease, severe intraventricular hemorrhage, necrotizing enterocolitis, or late onset-sepsis gained weight faster than comparable infants with those morbidities.
Risk factors for early death among extremely low-birth-weight infants.
TLDR
Early death (<12 hours of age) among extremely low-birth-weight infants may reflect an assessment of non-viability by obstetricians and neonatologists.
Outcomes of children of extremely low birthweight and gestational age in the 1990s.
TLDR
It is concluded that, with current methods of care, the limits of viability have been reached and the continuing toll of major neonatal morbidity and neurodevelopmental handicap are of serious concern.
Sex differences in outcomes of very low birthweight infants: the newborn male disadvantage
TLDR
Relative differences in short term morbidity and mortality persist between the sexes in very low birthweight infants attributable to sex.
Viability, Morbidity, and Resource Use Among Newborns of 501-to 800-g Birth Weight
TLDR
The authors' analyses support use of MV for females at a minimum birth weight approximately 100 g lower than that for males, and the current diagnosis related group reimbursement system can be expected to compromise resources for 501- to 800-g infants who would benefit from MV.
