Liver Resection Experience for Metastatic Small Bowel NETs, a Single Center Experience
Introduction: Over the last two decades, the role of surgery in the management of small bowel NETs (SBNET) has evolved. There is growing evidence supporting the role of liver resection for metastatic disease.
Aim(s): To demonstrate if patients who have liver resection of hepatic metastases from metastatic SBNET have improved survival.
Materials and methods: One-hundred and thirty-nine patients with SBNET were identified from the Kings NET database. Ninety-two patients with stage 4 SBNET at presentation. Thirty-seven patients (12 male: 26 female) underwent a total of 48 liver surgery episodes +/- radiofrequency ablation. One patient had a liver transplant. Mean age 55.6 years (range 32-77). All patients that underwent liver resection had the primary tumor resected previously or at the time of liver surgery.
