Hepato-biliary disturbances occurring during total parenteral nutrition (TPN) can be considered as the major secondary metabolic complication of this therapy. Rhythm, duration, and nutritional regimen of TPN as well as the underlying disease of patients may play a role in the pathogenisis and prevalence of hepatobiliary complications.
