Complete, parenteral feeding by continuous drip infusion into large veins over long periods has a solid, therapeutic place in children's surgery. It embraces complete filling of the need for water, salts, glucose, amino acids, triglycerides, essential fatty acids, vitamins and trace elements. Bearing in mind certain basic principles, it can achieve a positive nitrogen balance and so anabolism even in the newborn and nursing infant, in spite of the high demand for calories and nitrogen.
