A Case of Multiple Pancreatic Insulinoma Laparoscopically Resected through Precise Spatial Diagnosis by SACI Test Abstract #1464

Introduction: Case: A 58-year-old man representing cold sweat, palpitation and nausea was admitted to our hospital and was pointed out parathyroid, pancreatic and superior mediastinal masses with CT.
Aim(s): The pancreatic and mediastinal masses were diagnosed as neuroendocrine tumor by EUS-FNA. Because of the high serum intact PTH, we suspected multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 and he gradually showed frequent symptom of hypoglycemia.
Materials and methods: Dynamic CT scan showed five masses spreading from body to tail of the pancreas and EUS showed suspicious lesions in the pancreatic head. FDG-PET and DOTATOC-PET studies showed multiple hot spots all through the pancreas with no evidence of liver metastases. To identify the localization of lesions secreting insulin, we performed the selective arterial calcium injection(SACI) test. SACI test showed increased insulin secretion at the proximal and distal site of splenic artery, indicating that the responsible lesions resided in the pancreas body and tail, but not in the pancreas head.

#2886 Risk Factors for Short Recurrence-Free Survivals after Resection of PanNET Liver Metastasis: Single Institutional Analysis
Introduction: Although the treatment of PanNEN has improved survivals with development of pharmacotherapy recently, surgery is the first choice if curative resection is expected to be achieved. However, most of the patients undergo recurrence after resection of the liver metastasis even after curative resection. Therefore, it is important to identify who gains longer RFS by resection.

#2955 Development of an EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire for Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours: Phases 1-3
Introduction: Measuring quality of life (QoL) in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (pNET) involves assessing issues from symptoms, disease and treatment. The validated gastrointestinal NETs module (EORTC QLQ-GINET21) is used with EORTC QLQ-C30 but there are concerns it inadequately measures QoL in pNET.
