Well-differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Prognostic Significance of Pathological Parameters
Introduction: Well-differentiated (WD) pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) are uncommon neoplasms and one challenge lies in predicting tumor behavior and managing these patients.
Aim(s): To evaluate contemporary outcomes associated with the surgical management of WD pNET and to assess the prognostic and biological behavior differences between the 2 grades of WD pNET.
Materials and methods: Patients with pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms in the last 15 years were retrospectively analysed. Histopathological findings and actual status of patients with grade 1(G1) and 2(G2) WD pNET were collected.
