RCT: In preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome, surfactant administration via a thin catheter did not improve outcomes.

Systematic Review: Late (after 6 days) systemic postnatal corticosteroids for prevention of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in preterm infants.

Systematic Review: Early (started within six days) systemic postnatal corticosteroids for preventing bronchopulmonary dysplasia in preterm infants.

State of the Art Review: Diagnosis and management of bronchopulmonary dysplasia.

Systematic Review: Surfactant therapy via thin catheter in preterm infants with or at risk of respiratory distress syndrome is associated with reduced risk of death or bronchopulmonary dysplasia, less intubation in the first 72 hours, and reduced incidence of major complications and in‐hospital mortality.
