PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Abnormalities of liver function tests are common in patients with intestinal failure receiving parenteral nutrition. Lipid emulsions have been implicated in the development of hepatobiliary disease in patients receiving parenteral nutrition. RECENT FINDINGS: Lipid emulsions with reduced polyunsaturated fatty acids and specific ω6 : ω3 fatty acid ratios have been shown to have some beneficial effects on liver function, although the studies are small and generally of short duration in paediatric and adult patients. SUMMARY: There is good evidence to suggest that the parenteral lipid dose should be less than 1 g/kg body weight/day, but this may not apply to all patients. The evidence is presented for the different lipid emulsions and their effect on liver function. The benefit of these emulsions compared with simply giving a lower lipid dose has yet to be studied.
