  1. Why infant very low birthweight rates have failed to decline in the United States vital statistics.

    Article - En anglais

    Background.

    Very low birthweight (VLBW) rates, i.e. births of <1500 g, have been long established as the major determinant of outcome for infants.

    Nevertheless, despite much medical, political and social effort, these rates have not declined during the past 40 years in the US Vital Statistics.

    To explore the causes of this disturbing finding, trends in low birthweight distribution at a community hospital and the Vital Statistics data were investigated.
