Objective: Surfactant treatment in the early hours of life significantly decreases the rates of death and air leak, and increases survival without bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in preterm infants. We aimed to compare the impact of early surfactant (ES) administration to late selective (LS) treatment on neonatal outcomes in preterm infants.
