Introduction: Surgical resection is the preferred treatment for NF-pNET, however recurrence still occurs frequently after curative surgery, worsening prognosis of patients.
Aim(s): To predict recurrence in patients with grade 1 or 2 non-functioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NF-pNET) after curative resection.
Materials and methods: Retrospectively patients with grade 1 or 2 NF-pNET without distant metastases, hereditary syndromes were included. Local or distant tumor recurrence was scored. The recurrence-score was developed to predict recurrence within 5-years after curative resection using independent predictors for recurrence.
