#2833 Surgical Correction of Carcinoid Heart Disease Improves Liver Function and 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid Levels

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours of the gastrointestinal tract cause carcinoid syndrome and carcinoid heart disease. These tumours secrete serotonin, which can bind to heart valves and cause fibrosis and valve incompetence. Most cases involve the tricuspid valve +/- pulmonary valve. Medical management comprises diuretics for fluid overload and somatostatin analogues to reduce circulating serotonin. Definitive treatment is heart-valve replacement surgery which improves exercise tolerance but has high perioperative mortality. We have previously reported that valve-replacement surgery can reduce 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels, reflecting a decline in hormone activity.
