#47 Plasma CCN2/connective tissue growth factor is associated with right ventricular dysfunction in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is a known complication of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), particularly of those arising from the small intestine, appendix and proximal colon (previously known as mid-gut carcinoids). CHD is characterized by right heart fibrotic lesions and has traditionally been defined by the degree of valvular involvement, most commonly in the form of tricuspid regurgitation. Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction due to mural involvement may also be a manifestation. Connective tissue growth factor (CCN2) is upregulated in many fibrotic disorders. Increased tumor expression of CCN2 has been shown in patients with small intestinal NETs associated with peritoneal fibrosis. At present, its role in carcinoid heart disease is unknown.

#461 The Good, the Bad, the Unexpected
Introduction: GEP NETs constitute less than 2% of all gastrointestinal malignancies; usually they are age-related with the highest incidence above the fifth decade. Primary GEP NETs are often asymptomatic, sometimes being incidentally discovered in resected surgical specimens when surgery has been undertaken for other intra-abdominal disease.

#543 Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Fine Needle Tissue Acquisition (EUS-FNTA) Using a 19-G Needle for Histological Grading of Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors (PETs): A Prospective Study
Introduction: EUS-FNTA is increasingly used in the diagnosis of pancreatic endocrine tumors (PETs). Ki-67 expression, an important prognostic factor according to the WHO classification, is difficult to be determined on cytological specimens.
