Patients undergoing elective cholecystectomy provide a highly reproducible model of the effects of trauma on intermediary metabolism. Three parenteral nutrition regimens were given to groups of eight such patients. An isonitrogenous total parenteral nutrition, including a commercially available amino acid solution, an amino acid solution enriched with branched chain amino acids or one supplemented with ornithine-alpha-ketoglutarate, was given after operation. The intra cellular free amino acid… CONTINUE READING
