#141 Incidence of second primary tumors in patients with neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Based on epidemiological data from SEER 1950-1999, 22.4% cases of non-carcinoid second primary tumors have been described in patients diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumors. The incidence of this type of tumors varies, depending on the series assessed.

#328 Report of Two First-Degree Relatives with Appendix Carcinoid and Review of the Literature
Introduction: Appendix endocrine tumors have an incidence of 2-3 patient/millon/year. They are more common in women, diagnosed incidentally during appendectomies.

#444 Gallium 68 DOTATATE PET CT Assessment of Patients (pts.) with Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP NETs): First Experience in a Multidisciplinary Team in Argentina (Argentum Group)
Introduction: 68Ga-DOTATATE PET CT offers higher resolution than other scintigraphic techniques in terms of localization of the primary tumor and staging of GEP NETs. Different reports in the literature suggest increased sensitivity but clear consensus about indication in neuroendocrine tumors is unclear.

#702 Observational Study of Patients with Gastroenteropancreatic and Bronchial Neuroendocrine Tumors in Argentina: Results from the Large Database of a Multidisciplinary Group. Clinical Multicenter Study
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) consist of a spectrum of malignancies that can arise from neuroendocrine cells throughout the body.

#715 Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Rectum: Experience in Argentina
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) of the rectum have been increasing in incidence. They are approximately 18% the all NETs and 27% of all gastrointestinal NETs. Rectal NETs are usually small and are often found incidentally during endoscopy. Patients (pts) with local disease have a favorable prognosis of a 5-year survival rate of 88-91%. Optimal treatment of NETs of the rectum has been widely debated.

#854 Scoping Study on Quality of Life (QL) in Patients (pts) with Neuroendoncrine Tumors (NET) of the Digestive Tract in Argentina: Preliminary Results
Introduction: Patients with NET compound a specific cancer population: their survival used to be longer than other cancer patient populations and they received drugs (eg. somatostatin analogues) rarely used on others. The systematic measure of QL in these patients could lead to better understanding of the impact of the disease and treatments, not only in terms of symptom prevalence but also in relation to daily concerns.

#868 Role of 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/TC (68Ga-PET-CT) for the Management of Patients with Neuroendrocrine Tumors (NETs): Impact in Therapeutic Decisions of our Clinical Practice
Introduction: 68Ga-PET-CT has demonstrated a higher diagnostic accuracy than any other imaging procedures (CT/MRI/SRS). ARGENTUM group described their experience with 68Ga-PET-CT in eight patients with advanced Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (ENETS 2011). Conclusion was that 68Ga-PET-CT enabled changes in the strategy of treatment in all cases. The impact of 68Ga-PET-CT on the therapeutic management in NETs is constantly under evaluation.

#938 Clinical Characteristics of 144 patients (pts) Included in a Multidisciplinary Group, with Well-Differentiated Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs) G2 (WHO 2010). Grupo Argentum.
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) G2 of the digestive tract are a heterogeneous group of tumors. Several treatment options including chemotherapy and target therapy are used, but there is a lack of prospective trials assessing the role of predictive factors in this population.

#969 Identification of Hypoxia Induced Epigenetic Changes in the Development of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: In VHL syndrome, pancreatic NETs develop through bi-allelic inactivation of VHL with subsequent HIF pathway activation. This also occurs in sporadic pancreatic NETs.

#1025 Evaluation of Patients (pts) with Neuroendocrine Tumors at First Cardiological Consultation with Echocardiographic (Echo) Method. Argentum Group
Introduction: The incidence of carcinoid tumors is approximately 1 in 75,000 of the population of whom 50% develop carcinoid syndrome. Once carcinoid syndrome has developed, approximately 50% of these patients develop carcinoid heart disease which typically causes abnormalities in the right side of the heart.
