|Title:||Extremely growth-retarded infants: is there a viability centile?|
|Citation:||PEDIATRICS, 2006, 118 (2), pp. 758-763|
|Abstract:||It is known that extremely premature infants do less well than more mature infants, and this fact has led some countries to adopt a "cutoff for viability" using birth weight or gestation. Infants affected by intrauterine growth retardation are at additional risk of poor outcome. There are few data to inform decisions about viability and (dis)continuation of intensive care when both extreme prematurity and severe growth retardation are present.|
