Abstract

In the sentence “The mortality rate steadily increased with time among all birth body weight and all GA groups during the study period (Table 3). Overall, the mortality rates of VLBW infants at discharge were 76.4%, 81.5%, and 85.1% in the three successive periods” under the section head Neonatal morbidity and mortality, the terms ‘mortality rates’ and ‘mortality rate’ should be replaced by ‘survival rates’ and ‘survival rate’. The correct sentence should read as “The survival rate steadily increased with time among all birth body weight and all GA groups during the study period (Table 3). Overall, the survival rates of VLBW infants at discharge were 76.4%, 81.5%, and 85.1% in the three successive periods.” The authors apologize for the error and inconvenience caused.
