Effects of medium-chain and long-chain triacylglycerols in pediatric surgical patients.

Abstract

Medium-chain triacylglycerols (MCTs) have been shown to provide better nutritional support than long-chain triacylglycerols (LCTs). This study compares the efficacy of MCT combined with LCT with LCT alone in pediatric patients with surgical stress. Two groups of patients (n = 19 in each) received equivalent amounts of glucose (12 g. kg. d) and amino acids… (More)
