What is rate of survival for babies born under these conditions and what is the danger of such babies having brain damage. My granddaughter was delivered by C/Section 8 weeks premature weighing just 780 grammes.

As my daughter lives in Hong Kong it is very difficult to get any info. I do speak with my daughter but as she is still in shock and recuperating it is not really appropriate to ask such questions. Would appreciate any help, advice and support during this trying time.

Most experts interpret the available information on perinatal survival to be similar for patients with preeclampsia and those that do not have the disease. It is gestational age-dependent to a large extent, and related to the statistics for the institution in which the delivery takes place. In the medical center in which I work, newborns in the 700-800 range survive 68% of the time and some of these babies have temporary or permanent significant morbidity.
