Abstract

Neonatology has seen many advances over the past decade. Exogenous surfactant therapy is now a mainstay treatment for respiratory distress syndrome. Partial liquid ventilation, high-frequency ventilation, and inhaled nitric oxide are all relatively new modalities, which have enabled neonatologists to treat with varying degrees of success ever younger and smaller patients. The purpose of this review is to examine studies regarding the long-term outcome of high-risk neonates, the various treatment modalities, and current neonatal surgical techniques, all of which will influence our care of the neonate.
