Does the ENETS TNM staging criteria predict survival in patients with small bowel neuroendocrine tumours?
Introduction: A TNM staging system was designed by ENETS to stage small bowel NETs .(SBNETs)
Aim(s): This study aims to retrospectively stage patients with SBNETs and see whether survival is dependent on stage and grade of disease and finally, identify cause of death.
Materials and methods: 138 patients with SBNETs were identified from Kings College Hospital. Primary site: Duodenal 2.1% (3), Jejunal 2.9% (4), ileal 95% (131). Mean duration of follow-up of 5 years. Median age 61 years (range 24-84).
