#2145 Thrombotic Risk in Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Single Centre Experience
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) comprise a heterogeneous group of neoplasms associated with paraneoplastic syndromes. Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a frequent complication in neoplastic patients and it is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. To date, there have been no specific studies in NEN, except for glucagon-secreting tumors

#1295 Intra-Operative Portal Vein Insulin Assay Combined with Occlusion of the Pancreas for Complicated Pancreatogenous Hypoglycemia
Introduction: Pancreatogenous hypoglycemia is a rare endocrine disorder. The precise localization of hypersecreting tissue and determination of complete resection are two main challenges for complicated pancreatogenous hypoglycemia, such as multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes type-1 (MEN-1) and nesidioblastosis.

#839 Complete Mesenterial Venous Obstruction – A Clinical Syndrome Unique to Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Small Bowel
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms of the small bowel are mostly advanced or metastasized at diagnosis. Metastases typically occur in the mesenteric root and liver.

#780 Epigenetic Regulation of Endogenous Somatostatin Expression in Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Somatostatin (SST) can regulate hormone secretion and cell proliferation in neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). SST expression levels in NETs likely differ between patients. DNA methylation inhibits gene transcription and can be reversed by the demethylating drug 5-aza-2-deoxycytidine (AZA).

#884 Simultanenous Duplicate Malignant Disease-Adenocarcinoma of the Colon and Disseminated Neuroendocrine Tumor
Introduction: Fifty-nine-year old man, under examination due to weight loss, enterorrhagia, general abdominal discomfort. Endoscopy detected tumorous infiltration 20 cm from the anus, bleeding. Histology: adenocarcinoma. CT abdomen detected liver lesion. The lesion was hypervascularized, and the CT picture was atypical for metastatic adenocarcinoma. CT chest: tumor lesion in the left lower segment, metastatic LN in mediastinum. According to the CT, the picture is atypical for metastases.

#1113 A Novel Approach for a Metastatic Gut-Derived Neuroendocrine Tumour: Simultaenous Intestinal and Vascularised Sentinel Forearm Flap Transplantation
Introduction: Non-resectable tumours involving the mesenteric root are an indication for intestinal and multivisceral transplantation (MVT). Vascularised sentinel forearm flaps (VSFF) offer possibilities for monitoring graft rejection and tailoring immunosuppression (IS) regimens.

#477 Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Receptor (GLP-1R) Imaging for the Preoperative Localization of Benign Insulinomas in 30 Patients
Introduction: Biochemical diagnosis of endogenous hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia is straightforward. Surgical removal of an insulinoma is hampered by difficulties to localize it using conventional radiological procedures. In vitro data suggest that human insulinoma cells exhibit a high density of GLP-1R. 111In-exendin-4 is an 111In labeled GLP-1R agonist that binds with high affinity to GLP-1R and may be helpful in localizing insulinomas.

#612 Serotonin in Blood: Assessment of its Origin by Concomitant Determination of β-Thromboglobulin (platelets) and Chromogranin A (enterochromaffin cells)
Introduction: Serotonin is produced in enterochromaffin (EC) cells, taken up and stored in platelets and released during platelet activation. Measurement of platelet-poor plasma serotonin is difficult, mainly due to platelet activation during blood sampling.
