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 primary outcome was a change in direct bilirubin concentration. Secondary outcomes included change in total bilirubin concentration and incidences of cholestasis and other disease states associated with PN and prematurity. Cholestasis was defined as direct bilirubin ≥ 1.0 mg/dL with total bilirubin 20% of total bilirubin with total bilirubin > 5.0 mg/dL. Results Change in direct-bilirubin concentration was not different between groups. Incidence of cholestasis was not different between groups per charted diagnosis or per study definition. Non-stage-0 retinopathy of prematurity, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, sepsis, and necrotizing enterocolitis were all lower in the mixed oil lipid emulsion group, which remained significant after adjustment for differences in gestational age, birth weight, and PN duration. Conclusions Although mixed oil lipid emulsion was not found to be associated with a lower risk of cholestasis, it may decrease risks of other disease states associated with PN therapy.

To examine the effectiveness of soybean oil-medium chain triglycerides-olive oil-fish oil lipid emulsion (SMOF-LE) on clinical outcomes of very-low-birth-weight neonates. We conducted a pre-post comparative study of very-low-birth-weight neonates, dividing them according to lipid emulsion received: Intralipid (soy-based; n = 680) or SMOF-LE (n = 617). Primary outcomes were mortality, chronic lung disease, severe retinopathy, infection, and necrotising enterocolitis. Secondary outcomes were chole...

BACKGROUND: Conventionally used soybean oil-based lipid emulsion (S-LE) have high polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) content and phytosterols that may contribute to adverse effects in preterm infants. The newer lipid emulsions (LE) from different lipid sources are currently available for use in preterm infants. OBJECTIVES: To compare the safety and efficacy of all LE for parenteral nutrition (PN) in preterm infants (less than 37 weeks' gestation) including preterm infants with surgical conditions...

Objetivo: La presencia de fitoesteroles en emulsiones lipidicas de origen vegetal se ha relacionado con la aparicion de alteraciones de los parametros de la funcion hepatica. El objetivo es determinar la presencia de fitoesteroles en las emulsiones registradas en el mercado farmaceutico. Metodo: Se analizaron tres-cuatro lotes no consecutivos de seis marcas distintas de emulsiones lipidicas (Clinoleic®, Intralipid®, Lipofundina®, Lipoplus®, Omegaven® y Smoflipid®) y las diferencias en contenido ...

Objectives To examine whether a mixed lipid emulsion reduces the incidence of parenteral nutrition associated cholestasis (PNAC) in extremely low birth weight (ELBW, Study design This double-blind randomized trial of 230 ELBW infants (June 2012-October 2015) was performed at a single level IV neonatal intensive care unit. Patients received either a mixed lipid emulsion composed of soybean oil, medium chain triglycerides, olive oil, and fish oil-(intervention) or a soybean oil-based lipid emulsio...

BackgroundStudies in animals and in humans have suggested that docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an n−3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid, might reduce the risk of bronchopulmonary dysplasia, but appropriately designed trials are lacking. MethodsWe randomly assigned 1273 infants born before 29 weeks of gestation (stratified according to sex, gestational age [<27 weeks or 27 to <29 weeks], and center) within 3 days after their first enteral feeding to receive either an enteral emulsion providing DH...

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; d...

Background: Soybean oil–based intravenous fat emulsion (IVFE) administered to preterm neonates can induce oxidative stress and inflammatory response, which are associated with severe complications of prematurity. This study aimed to test the hypothesis that administration of medium-chain triglyceride (MCT)/ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA)–enriched IVFE in preterm neonates is associated with a cytokine and fatty acid (FA) profile consistent with attenuated inflammatory response. Patients/Met...

Summary Background & aims Lipid emulsions containing fish oil, as source of long chain omega 3 fatty acids, have recently became available for parenteral nutrition in infants, but scanty data exist in extremely low birth weight preterms. The objective of this study was to compare plasma fatty acids and lipid tolerance in preterm infants receiving different doses of a 15% fish oil vs. a soybean oil based lipid emulsion. Methods Preterm infants (birth weight 500–1249 g) were randomized to receive ...

Very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) infants are dependent on parenteral nutrition after birth. A parenteral lipid emulsion with a multicomponent composition may improve growth and neurodevelopment and may prevent liver injury, which is often observed in association with long-term parenteral nutrition with pure soybean oil. Our aim was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a multicomponent lipid emulsion containing 30% soybean oil, 30% medium-chain triacylglycerol, 25% olive oil, and 15% fish oil compa...

Background: Parenteral nutrition (PN) is a high-alert medication available for patient care within a complex clinical process. Beyond application of best practice recommendations to guide safe use and optimize clinical outcome, several issues are better addressed through evidence-based policies, procedures, and practices. This document provides evidence-based guidance for clinical practices involving PN prescribing, order review, and preparation. Method: A systematic review of the best available...
