Challenging in Predicting Response in Treatment of Neuroendocrine Pancreatic Tumors: Nutritional Factors


Introduction: Neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors (NEPT) include a heterogeneous neoplasms group in pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, treatment and prognosis.

Aim(s): To evaluate the nutritional factors which better predict the response to surgical treatment, disease-free survival and total survival.

Materials and methods: Twenty-six NEPTS intervened surgically in our center between 2009 and 2013 were reviewed. Data about lost weight, albumin, total protein and lymphocytes pre-intervention were collected. Complications after surgery, overall survival and disease-free survival to date were also reviewed.
