Indications for total intravenous feeding. Paediatric Surgical Departments take care of an increasing number of newborn children with life threatening malformations and other complications precluding oral feeding for prolonged periods. The longer this period is, the more the survival of the patient depends on the feasibility of balanced total parenteral feeding. Furthermore, parenteral feeding, insofar as it sustains normal growth, counteracts the permanent reduction in brain size which may result from protein-calorie-malnutrition in early life (1).
