Evaluation of Overall Survival (OS) in Patients with NETG1/G2 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Small Intestine (SI-NENs)
Introduction: In many cases, the cause of death in patients with carcinoid syndrome (CS) is carcinoid heart disease (CHD) which is most often diagnosed in patients with SI-NEN.
Aim(s): The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the OS in patients with NETG1/G2 SI-NEN, also in the course of CS and CHD.
Materials and methods: A total of 275 patients with confirmed NETG1/G2 SI-NEN were included. Overall 108 patients with CS in the course of SI- NEN and 28 patients with diagnosed CHD were analyzed. OS was evaluated using the Kaplan-Meier method. The differences between groups in OS were calculated using Cox–Mantel test.
