Right Hemicolectomy in the Treatment of Patients with Appendiceal Neuroendocrine Tumors: Does Size Matter?


Introduction: A recent study of a small series of patients with appendiceal neuroendocrine tumors (ANETs) fulfilling various criteria for right hemicolectomy (RHC) revealed that approximately 25% may harbor identifiable extra-appendiceal disease. The residual disease might not have been detected using the latest European Neuroendocrine Tumors Society (ENETS) revised pathological criteria.

Aim(s): To evaluate the pathological criteria for RHC in an extended series of patients with ANETs.

Materials and methods: The medical files of 27 consecutive patients who underwent RHC for ANETs were retrospectively assessed.
