CONCLUSIONS: in our NICU the discharge of ELBW/VLBW preterm newborns < 32 weeks GA and/or < 1500 g can be feasible at a mean weight close to 1900 g. An early transfer from incubator at a mean weight of 1737 g promotes an early discharge from hospital. Major diseases affecting those newborn haven't influenced weight at discharge.
