A Single Centre Analysis of the Management of Appendiceal Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NENs) Including Goblet Cell Carcinoids (GCC) Abstract #1654

Introduction: Appendiceal neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are usually diagnosed incidentally on histology following an appendicectomy. They include carcinoid tumours (appendiceal neuroendocrine tumours, NETs) and goblet cell carcinoids (GCC). GCC neoplasms are able to transform to an adenocarcinoma phenotype.
Aim(s): To assess whether the management of appendiceal NENs, including surgical management is appropriate, according to the histology of the appendicectomy specimen.
Materials and methods: A retrospective analysis of the prospectively kept NETs database was performed. The type, staging, size and Ki-67 index of appendiceal NETs, and outcomes of right hemicolectomies (RHCs) was extracted.
