#84 Rare association between pancreatic insulinoma and Graves's disease: fortune or misfortune?
Introduction: In spite of low frequency ( 4 cases in 1 million population), insulimoma is a significant pathology because hypoglycemia causes severe neurologic lesions and death.

#104 Myocardial motion abnormalities in patients with carcinoid disease without overt carcinoid heart disease
Introduction: Cardiac abnormalities occur in 15-70% of patients with carcinoid disease, typified by fibrosis of the right-sided valves. Myocardial motion abnormalities in subjects without overt carcinoid heart disease have not been previously described. Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) allows quantative analysis of myocardial motion. We used this technique to investigate whether myocardial motion is reduced, suggesting fibrosis, in patients with carcinoid disease.

#105 A pilot study using biochemical markers to predict acrcinoid heart disease in patients with carcinoid disease
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) affects up to 15-70% of patients with carcinoid disease. Recent ENETS guidelines recommend regular echocardiographic assessment to screen for CHD. Chromogranin A (CgA) is a peptide widely used to monitor carcinoid disease progression. Neurokinin A is a tachykinin which may be a more sensitive measure of carcinoid disease progression and prognosis. N-terminal pro Brain Naturetic Peptide is used as a screening tool for heart failure and recent results suggest utility in the diagnosis of CHD.

#416 A Rare Case of Cushing Syndrome Caused by an Ectopic ACTH-Secreting Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor in a Patient with Von Hipple-Lindau Disease
Introduction: Von Hipple-Lindau (VHL) disease is a rare autosomal dominant disorder, that causes the susceptibility to various tumors, both benign and malignant. The most frequent tumors are central nervous system haemangioblastomas, especially cerebellum and retinal haemangioblastomas, renal cell carcinoma /renal cysts and pheocromocytoma.

#261 Recognizing Carcinoid Heart Disease and Timing of Cardiac and Abdominal Procedures
Introduction: Recognition of right heart failure in Carcinoid Heart Disease enables a decision to be made concerning the proper timing of Cardiac and abdominal tumor-reductive surgery.

#1272 Telotristat Etiprate Appears to Halt Carcinoid Heart Disease
Introduction: Carcinoid Heart Disease (CHD) is a serious complication of the Carcinoid Syndrome (in as many as 50% of patients during the course of their disease). 46% of cases operated with bioprosthetic valves develop recurrent carcinoid valvulopathy on the newly implanted tissue valves. Until now, only mechanical prosthetic valves avoid recurrent fibrosis.

#1818 Patient Outcomes after Cardiac Surgery for Carcinoid Heart Disease Are Dependant Upon Successful Cytoreductive Multimodal Treatment and Control of Metastatic Neuroendocrine Disease
Introduction: Carcinoid Heart Disease (CHD) as a result of long standing carcinoid syndrome is associated with a poor prognosis due to development of valvular incompetence & right heart failure. Cardiac valve surgery is the main therapeutic option.

#2164 A Case of Carcinoid Induced Heart Disease
Introduction: Carcinoid Heart disease is a common disease with neuroendocrine malignancies that invade the liver due to the paraneoplastic effects of vasoactive substances such as 5-hydroxytryptamine, histamine and tachykinins released by malignant cells rather than any direct metastatic involvement of the heart.

#547 Insulin Autoimmune Syndrome Mimicking Insulinoma: A Challenging Diagnosis
Introduction: Insulin autoimmune syndrome (IAS) is a rare condition characterized by hypoglycemia due to autoantibodies against endogenous insulin. It is correlated, in approximately 50% of cases, to specific drugs intake. Hypoglycemia occurs typically during the late post-prandial period.
