Hemicolectomy for Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Appendix - Is It Really Necessary?
Introduction: Appendical neuroendocrine neoplasms (ANENs) are rare. Limited data is available regarding prognosis and optimal treatment strategy in those tumors
Aim(s): To evaluate the long term outcome of ANENs and to estimate whether right hemicolectomy influences the prognosis of high risk patients.
Materials and methods: Appendectomy pathology reports from a single tertiary center were reviewed. For patients diagnosed with ANEN, demographic, clinical and pathological data were obtained.
