Resumen

SEPULVEDA M, Álvaro; KOBRICH S, Stephanie; GUINEZ G, Rodolfo  y  HASBUN H, Jorge. Morbilidad de prematuros tardíos: evidencia actual y nuevo enfoque. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2012, vol.77, n.2, pp. 154-158. ISSN 0717-7526.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262012000200013.

Preterm deliveries are considering the main cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality, mainly those born before 32 weeks of gestational age. However, those born between 34-36 weeks, until recently managed as a low risk newborn, now are defined as late preterm and are considered as high risk children. This review shows a summary of current international evidence related to epidemiology, morbidity and mortality of late preterm, encouraging the concept of high risk of this group not only in neonatal period, but also in long term outcome.

Palabras clave : Late preterm; respiratory distress; morbidity; neonatal mortality; preterm birth.
