STUDY TAKEAWAY
In postoperative surgical patients, Smoflipid® demonstrated a lower triglyceride increase compared to those patients who received a lipid emulsion with a higher soybean oil content.18

Monitor serum triglycerides before and during treatment with Smoflipid®. Company-sponsored studies showed that mean triglyceride levels from baseline values to week 4 were similar in both the Smoflipid® and comparator groups.11
