Summary of "Threatened preterm birth: Validation of a nomogram to predict the individual risk of very preterm delivery in a secondary care center."

Very preterm delivery (22-32 weeks of gestation) remains a major cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality. The objective of this study was to validate a statistical model allowing to predict the risk of preterm delivery to use as a clinical decision-making tool for in utero transfer from a secondary to a tertiary care center.
