Efficacy and Safety of Omega-3 Lipid Therapy in Pediatric Patients With Parenteral Nutrition-Associated Liver Disease
This pilot study seeks to demonstrate the efficacy of an intravenous lipid preparation high in omega-3 fatty acids (Omegaven) in the treatment of cholestasis in parenteral nutrition dependent patients with short gut syndrome.
