This is a retrospective cohort study designed to analyze neonatal mortality and morbidity rates at 34, 35, and 36 weeks of gestation compared with births at term over the past 18 years at the authors' hospital and to estimate the magnitude of increased risk associated with late preterm births compared with births later in gestation.
In this study, researchers linked compulsory national registries in Norway to identify children of different gestational-age categories who were born between 1967 and 1983 and to follow them through 2003 in order to document medical disabilities and outcomes reflecting social performance.
Researchers sought to evaluate number and timing of elective cesarean sections at term and to assess perinatal outcome associated with this timing by conducting a retrospective cohort study including all elective cesarean sections of singleton pregnancies at term (n = 20,973) with neonatal follow-up. Primary outcome was defined as a composite of neonatal mortality and morbidity.
