Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (pNETs) are rare neoplasms of variable grade of malignancy. Surgery is the only curative treatment.
Aim(s): To analyse the morbidity and mortality rate, the disease free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) following resection for p-NETs in a single high-volume centre.
Materials and methods: From April 1998 until May 2014, 100 patients underwent pancreatic resection for p-NET at Royal Free Hospital. Morbidity was defined based on Dindo-Clavien postoperative classification, mortality rate was defined as related to surgery until 90th post-operative day.
