#77 Angiogenesis markers after hepatic artery embolization of liver metastases in patients with neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: In the event of diffuse hepatic metastases, hepatic artery embolization (HAE) can be a successful treatment option in patients with well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumors (WNET). Although there are suggestions of activation of the angiogenesis by HAE, no information is available about the development of growth factors caused by vascular obstruction with embolization.

#211 Phase II Study of Sunitinib Following Hepatic Transarterial Embolization for Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Hepatic transarterial embolization is often recommended for patients with liver-predominant metastatic NETs. Antiangiogenic therapy following embolization may delay tumor revascularization.

#145 Paragangliomas: a series of five cases
Introduction: Paraganglioma is a rare extraadrenal neuroendocrine tumor, composed of chromaffin cells and arising from the neural crest. The head, neck, and retroperitoneum are the most common sites for paraganglioma.

#243 Morbidity and Mortality Associated with Desmoplasia in Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: The clinical course of midgut NETs may be heavily complicated by problems related to mesenteric desmoplasia, causing symptoms secondary to mesenteric artery/vein occlusion and bowel obstruction.

#374 Hyperammonemic Encephalopathy in Neuroendocrine Tumor Resolved Through Liver Embolization: A Case Report
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors are a rare cause of secondary hyperammonemic encephalopathy. Possible etiological mechanisms are global hepatic dysfunction secondary to tumor burden or microvascular portosystemic shunting in the liver metastases often present in GEP-NET.

#530 Liver Transplantation for Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumor: A Case Series and Proposed Selection Criteria
Introduction: Liver transplantation (LT) for neuroendocrine tumor (NET) metastases is associated with a high risk of tumor recurrence. Patient selection is the key to future success and its increased utilization.

#695 Pancreatic Angiography with Selective Intra-Arterial Calcium Stimulation for the Localization of Insulinomas: A Case Report.
Introduction: Surgery is the gold standard treatment of insulinomas. Before planning the surgical procedure, the tumor must be precisely localized. Usually, the combination of Endoscopic Ultrasound, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging localize more than 80% of the tumors. But due to its small size, other more sophisticated techniques must be performed in order to improve the diagnosis accuracy. Some of them, like angiography, are invasive.

#810 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Presenting in Pregnancy with Severe Hypercalcemia
Introduction: Malignant hypercalcemia secondary to pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (pNET) is a rare occurrence with no standard management. We report a challenging case of pNET presenting during pregnancy and complicated by severe hypercalcemia.
