Cholestasis in preterm infants has a multifactorial etiology. Risk factors include degree of prematurity, lack of enteral feeding, intestinal injury, prolonged use of parenteral nutrition (PN), and sepsis. Soy-based parenteral lipid emulsions have been implicated in the pathophysiology of PN-associated liver injury. Inflammation plays an important role. Medical therapies are used; however, their effects have not consistently proven effective. Evaluation of cholestasis involves laboratory work; direct bilirubin levels are used for diagnosis and trending. Adverse outcomes include risk for hepatobiliary dysfunction, irreversible liver failure, and death. Early enteral feedings as tolerated is the best way to prevent and manage cholestasis.

Background: Small enteral boluses with human milk may reduce the risk of subsequent feeding intolerance and necrotizing enterocolitis in preterm infants receiving parenteral nutrition (PN). We hypothesized that feeding amniotic fluid, the natural enteral diet of the mammalian fetus, will have similar effects and improve growth and gastrointestinal (GI) maturation in preterm neonates receiving PN, prior to the transition to milk feeding. Materials and Methods: Twenty-seven pigs, delivered by cesa...

Background: Premature infants depend on intravenous fat emulsions to supply essential fatty acids and calories. The dose of soybean-based intravenous fat emulsions (S-IFE) has been associated with parenteral nutrition (PN)–associated liver disease. This study’s purpose was to determine if low-dose S-IFE is a safe and effective preventive strategy for cholestasis in preterm neonates. Materials and Methods: This is a multicenter randomized controlled trial in infants with a gestational age (GA) ≀2...

Intestinal failure (IF) is considered the end result of gastrointestinal disorders in which functional intestinal mass is inadequate to promote adequate growth, hydration, and electrolye balance.1 Today, a substantial number of infants and children with IF, caused by short bowel syndrome (SBS), necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), gastroschisis, intestinal atresias, motlity disorders and genetic enterocyte transport defects, depend upon long term parenteral nutrition (PN) for survival and the promot...

Background: Parenteral nutrition (PN)–associated liver disease (PNALD) remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality for neonates dependent on PN. Total fat emulsion dose and composition, particularly the large amount of ω-6 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids in plant oils, have been proposed as risk factors for PNALD. We hypothesized restriction of the dose of emulsion would prevent PNALD, regardless of the composition, but growth could be compromised. Methods: Using a neonatal pig...

Background Use of a central venous catheter (CVC) in neonates is associated with an increase in nosocomial infection. Numerous strategies exist to prevent catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI); however, CRBSI continues to be a major problem. Antibiotic locking catheters is a new and promising treatment that potentially prevents this severe condition. Objectives To assess the effectiveness of antibiotic lock versus no antibiotic lock or alternative antibiotic lock in the prevention of ca...

BACKGROUND: Growing evidence indicates that fish oil-containing lipid emulsions have a beneficial effect on parenteral nutrition-associated cholestasis (PNAC) in adults; however, data are limited in neonates regarding the effect of fish oil on PNAC. OBJECTIVE: We conducted a meta-analysis of studies that addressed the effect of fish oil-containing lipid emulsions on reversing and preventing PNAC. METHODS: We searched PubMed, the EMBASE database, and the Cochrane Library for this systematic revie...

Background: Development of hepatic dysfunction is a well-recognized complication of total parenteral nutrition in preterm infants. Previous studies reported the incidence of total parenteral nutrition-associated cholestasis and described possible contributing factors to its pathogenesis, but little is done trying to determine its possible predictive risk factors. The aim of this study were to determine the incidence of total parenteral nutrition-associated cholestasis and to develop a possible p...

Objective To test the hypothesis that early enteral supplementing fat and fish oil decreases the duration of parenteral nutrition (PN) and increases enteral nutrition (EN) before bowel reanastomosis in premature infants with an enterostomy. Study design Premature infants ( t test or Wilcoxon rank sum test. Results There were no differences in the duration of PN, ostomy output, and weight gain between the 2 groups before reanastomosis. However, supplemented infants received less intravenous lipid...

Background Parenteral nutrition (PN) is crucial for the improvement of long-term outcomes in very low birth weight (VLBW) neonates. Lipid injectable emulsions are a key component of PN, as they contain essential fatty acids and provide energy critical for brain growth. Prolonged administration increases risk of intestinal failure-associated liver disease, including cholestasis, and other complications. Methods This is a retrospective, quasi-experimental cohort study of 215 VLBW neonates. The pri...

Despite the recent advances involving molecular studies, the neonatal cholestasis (NC) diagnosis still relays on the expertise of medical teams. Our aim was to develop models of etiological diagnosis and unfavourable prognosis which may support a rationale diagnostic approach. We retrospectively analysed 154 patients born between January 1985 and October 2019. The cohort was divided into two main groups: (A) transient cholestasis and (B) other diagnosis (with subgroups) and also in two groups of...

Intestinal failure–associated liver disease (IFALD) is common in neonates who suffer from intestinal failure and rely on parenteral nutrition. The etiology is multifactorial, relating to the infant’s underlying cause of intestinal failure and other infant factors such as prematurity. Management of the disease includes transitioning to enteral feedings as soon as is safe for the infant. In infants who continue to rely on parenteral nutrition, alternative lipid emulsions and other medications may ...
