#1006 The Use of Endoluminal Stents to Overcome Vascular Obstruction Arising from Mesenteric and Retroperitoneal Neuroendocrine Metastases
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET) often metastasise to lymph nodes. Nodal metastases from neuroendocrine tumors in the distal small intestine commonly (>50%) develop in the mesentery and are often centred at the mesenteric root surrounding the major vessels supplying the bowel. Compression of these vessels, by the nodes or associated fibrosis, can lead to severe symptoms such as pain (secondary to bowel ischaemia ), ascites (from superior mesenteric vein obstruction) and bowel perforation. In view of the often indolent nature of GEP-NET, symptoms from lymph node masses can persist for years, causing significant morbidity and early mortality.

#646 Immunohistochemical (IHC) and Cytogenetic Approach for Improving Diagnosis and Therapy of Ewing Sarcoma (ES)/pPNET Arising in the Ileocecal Region
Introduction: ES/pPNET primary to the ileocecal region (IpPNET) have been rarely reported on and show close similarities in histology and clinical presentation with small round blue cell tumors. The EWS gene is fused to four members of the ETS family.

#1286 A Comparative Analysis of Ki67 Index of the High Grade Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Arising in the Gastrointestinal Tract and the Pancreas
Introduction: A common classification has been used for NET in gastrointestinal tract (GI-NET) and pancreas (P-NET), but heterogeneity has been reported in high grade tumors; well-differentiated G3 (WDG3), poorly differentiated NEC (NEC), and mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinoma (MANEC).

#2260 Carcinoid Heart Failure in a Metastatic Duodenal Neuroendocrine Tumor: A Challenging Case Report.
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is a potenzial fatal cardiac manifestation, characterized by fibrous endocardial thickening involving right-sided heart valves. In 70% of cases, CHD occurs in advanced small bowel NETs with carcinoid syndrome (CS). Serotonin seems to play a main role. Early recognition and surgical intervention may improve the outcome of patients.

#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.

#114 Downstaging of a gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumor after combination therapy of temozolomide, Bevacizumab and long-acting somatostatin analogs
Introduction: Patients with gastroenteropancreatic endocrine (GEP) tumors and progressive disease have been treated with several chemotherapeutic regimens with variable responses and considerable toxicity. Recent studies have shown that GEP tumors may respond to therapy with anti-angiogenic agents, mainly as a result of their increased vascularity.

#142 The role of 18F DOPA-PET in a case of malignant pheochromcytoma
Introduction: Pheocromocytoma is a rare tumor arising from chromaffin cells of adrenal medullary or extra adrenal paraganglionic tissue. Histological criteria cannot differentiate benign from malignant pheocromocytomas. The diagnosis of a malignant pheocromocytoma requires local invasion, recurrence and documented metastatic disease. The radionuclide scanning (123I - 131I-MIBG) is a fundamental diagnostic tool used to confirm the biochemical and radiological diagnosis of pheochromocytoma. In fact, MIBG scanning may confirm that the visualised lesion in an adrenal gland is indeed a pheochromocytoma and detect extra-adrenal paraganglionic tissue. However, MIBG scans are negative in around 15% of benign pheochromocytomas and in up to 50% of malignant ones. Other radionuclide techniques (18FDG-PET, 18F-DOPA-PET, 18F-FDA-PET) have been successfully used in investigation of pheochromocytomas. 18F-DOPA-PET and 18F-FDA-PET have been reported to be highly sensitive and specific for benign pheochromocytomas, while 18FDG-PET can be useful for malignant lesions with higher metabolic activity.
