Parenteral nutrition (PN) has been widely used in premature infants untill enteral feeding can be tolerated. Cholestasis is an important complication of PN. The objective of this study was to evaluate the role of serial measurements of serum amyloid A (SAA) during PN and compare its' effectiveness with C-reactive protein (CRP) and procalcitonin (PCT). We also aimed to determine the risk factors for PN associated cholestasis (PNAC).
