[Follow-up of essential fatty acids in parenteral nutrition in which a fat preparation is included].An Esp Pediatr. 1983 Nov; 19(5):353-7.AE
Changes in essential fatty acids of twenty two patients during parenteral nutrition are studied. Two populations (neonatal and others) were differencied. In the neonatal group a percentual decrease in arachidonic acid was showed. In both groups a percentual increase of linoleic acid was observed. Possible implications of these findings are discussed.
