Survival of infants born at 24 to 28 weeks' gestation.


Factors affecting the survival of 136 consecutive live-born infants delivered at 24 to 28 weeks' gestation during a 4-year period were analyzed. After careful assessment of gestational age, perinatal care for the fetus of at least 26 weeks' gestation was aggressive. Survival at 26 weeks was 45% and at 28 weeks, 92%. Multivariate analysis showed that the set of variables that best predicts neonatal outcome is gestational age, antepartum glucocorticoid administration, and resuscitation at birth.
