The relation between long-term temporal trends in stillbirth and neonatal death rates and the congenital malformation frequencies in such deaths were analysed, using data from hospital-based European, USA, and Canadian reports published from 1950.
In the last 50 years the overall perinatal mortality rate has fairly steadily improved, decreasing by 65-80%. This was accomplished by the control of some serious problems of early life.
However lingering disorders form an ever larger proportion of the causes of perinatal mortality.
