OBJECTIVE Infants with chronic cholestasis may require parenteral nutrition with lipid emulsions to provide energy and essential fatty acids but the optimal strategy is controversial. METHODS We studied the effects of parenteral lipid emulsions with long-chain triacylglycerols (LCTs) or a mixture of LCTs and medium-chain triacylglycerols (MCTs/LCTs) on serum bilirubin and lipid metabolism in cholestatic infants who received these 20% emulsions in alternating order for 3 d each, together with… CONTINUE READING
