Abstract

A central venous catheter is a risk factor for deep vein thrombosis. We compared the incidence of deep vein thrombosis in children with intestinal failure patients receiving soy oil lipid emulsion (n = 35) vs fish oil lipid emulsion (n = 35). Ten deep vein thrombosis occurred in the soy oil lipid emulsion group, and none in the fish oil lipid emulsion group (P < .001).
