Abstract

During the 1975-1984 period, 93 infants weighing 1500 g or less were transferred to the Magenta Perinatal Center Hospital. The survival rate at discharge was 82.9% for infants transferred in utero and 63.5% for infants transferred postnatally (p less than 0.05). The incidence of major neurological sequelae was 3.1% and 23.3% respectively (p less than 0.02). This experience confirms that the high risk pregnancies should be referred to the Perinatal Center for optimal care of the mother, fetus and newborn infant.
