#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.

#582 Comparison of biomarkers in predicting presence and severity of carcinoid heart disease in patients with metastatic mid-gut neuroendocrine tumours
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is evaluated using echocardiography. The utility of plasma biomarkers for detecting the presence/severity of CHD is under-explored.

#671 Comparison of the Utility of Biochemical Markers in Predicting the Presence and Severity of Carcinoid Heart Disease
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is a complication of metastatic neuroendocrine disease and is screened for using echocardiography.

#951 SYMNET: A Study of Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) Associated with Lanreotide Autogel (LAN) for the Control of Carcinoid Syndrome (CS) Symptoms in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (GEP-NET) Patients (Pts)
Introduction: Somatostatin analogs can reduce incidence/severity of CS symptoms but their impact on pt satisfaction needs further investigation.

#1921 Prognostic Factors That Mandate Long Term Follow Up Following Surgery for Appendiceal Neuroendocrine Tumours (aNETs)
Introduction: Appendiceal neuroendocrine tumours (aNETs) are usually diagnosed incidentally at appendicectomy and rarely recur. Current ENET guidelines inform their management and highlight areas of uncertainty.
