#839 Complete Mesenterial Venous Obstruction – A Clinical Syndrome Unique to Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Small Bowel

#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.

#28 Prognostic Clinicopathologic Factors in Longitudinally Followed Patients with Metastatic Small Bowel Carcinoid
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors demonstrate heterogeneous behavior based upon site of origin and specific histology. Even after controlling for anatomic location, disease stage and histologic grade, registry studies show persistent diversity of outcome in patients with midgut carcinoid.

#376 Resection of Primary Tumor Improves Survival in Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Single Center Experience
Introduction: Small bowel neuroendocrine tumors are uncommon tumors with an incidence of <0.5-1 per 100,000 population/year. We report on the survival rates of patients who had the primary tumor resected, to see whether primary tumor removal improves outcome.
