#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.

#139 Association of carcinoid with noncarcinoid neoplasms
Introduction: Carcinoid tumors have a complex disease spectrum. Most have a benign clinical course, but some are aggressive, with invasive growth, metastasis and short survival. In carcinoid tumors, more than 20% are associated with noncarcinoid neoplasms. When the second tumor is a more malignant lesion, the prognosis usually is correlated more closely with the noncarcinoid malignant neoplasm.

#1272 Telotristat Etiprate Appears to Halt Carcinoid Heart Disease
Introduction: Carcinoid Heart Disease (CHD) is a serious complication of the Carcinoid Syndrome (in as many as 50% of patients during the course of their disease). 46% of cases operated with bioprosthetic valves develop recurrent carcinoid valvulopathy on the newly implanted tissue valves. Until now, only mechanical prosthetic valves avoid recurrent fibrosis.

#1296 The Application of Octreotide in a SINET Patient with Carcinoid Syndrome, Carcinoid Heart Disease and Carcinoid Crisis: A Case Report
Introduction: In Chinese population, small intestinal neuroendocrine tumor (SINET) only accounts for 2.2% of gastroenteropancreatic NET, while carcinoid syndrome, carcinoid heart disease (CHD) and carcinoid crisis are rarer.

#2164 A Case of Carcinoid Induced Heart Disease
Introduction: Carcinoid Heart disease is a common disease with neuroendocrine malignancies that invade the liver due to the paraneoplastic effects of vasoactive substances such as 5-hydroxytryptamine, histamine and tachykinins released by malignant cells rather than any direct metastatic involvement of the heart.

#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.

#1818 Patient Outcomes after Cardiac Surgery for Carcinoid Heart Disease Are Dependant Upon Successful Cytoreductive Multimodal Treatment and Control of Metastatic Neuroendocrine Disease
Introduction: Carcinoid Heart Disease (CHD) as a result of long standing carcinoid syndrome is associated with a poor prognosis due to development of valvular incompetence & right heart failure. Cardiac valve surgery is the main therapeutic option.
