A Single Centres Experience of Cardiac Metastasis from Neuroendocrine Tumours (NET) Abstract #1395

Introduction: Cardiac metastasis from NET are rare with little information to guide management strategies. Previous case reports discuss varying strategies including observation, somatostatin analogues (SSA), chemotherapy, radiotherapy and resection.
Aim(s): We present a single institution experience of managing such cardiac metastases.
Materials and methods: We retrospectively searched the NET multidisciplinary database at a single centre in Queensland, Australia over the period of 2007 to 2015.

#2069 Tumor Absorbed Dosimetry and Response of Radionuclide Therapy in Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumor
Introduction: Increased tumour lesion absorbed dosimetry (TLAD) from peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) is associated with neuroendocrine tumours (NET) response. Responses to PRRT might be impacted by NET grade, site of origin and use of concurrent chemotherapy.

Introduction: Two recent studies shows that cardiac metastases occur rather frequently, 13% in a population of serotoninproducing NETs(Noordzij 2014) and 4% in our own patient kohort of ileal NETs(Calissendorff 2014).
