#3037 Effects of Debulking Surgery, Transarterial Embolisation (TAE) and Transarterial Chemoembolisation (TACE) on Quality of Life in Patients with Metastatic Ileal and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs)
Introduction: Debulking surgery, TAE and TACE procedures are undertaken in patients with metastatic NETs. Reducing the physical burden of disease may prolong survival and can improve the quality of life of patients. However, there is only limited quality of life data available after surgery despite the fact that is has been used routinely for many years.

#2878 Surgical Management of Neuroendocrine Tumor-Associated Liver Metastases
Introduction: Liver metastasis is common among patients who suffer from neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Radical surgery is the standard treatment whenever possible but there is still controversies concerning the treatment strategies such as resection of the primary, role of debulking surgery, liver transplantation (LT) and neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapies.

#3020 Outcomes Following Surgical Management of Pulmonary Carcinoids – A Tertiary Center Experience
Introduction: Pulmonary carcinoids are a rare type of malignant lung tumour. Surgery forms the mainstay of management when operable. However, there is paucity of data on conservative management and effective follow-up strategies.

#2862 Concurrent Metastatic Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Tumor and Pituitary Macroadenoma
Introduction: The coexistence of a sellar mass in a patient with a neuroendocrine tumor, while rare, can paint the clinical picture of either a genetic syndrome, most notably multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 1(MEN1) or pituitary metastasis recently more frequent probably due to the longer survival of cancer patients.

#25 Predictors of response to radio-embolization (TheraSphere ®) treatment of neuro-endocrine liver metastasis
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) frequently metastasize to the liver. Most patients have diffuse, and therefore incurable, disease. NET liver metastasis has been shown to respond to yttrium-90 microspheres therapy. This study aims to define factors that predict response to radio-embolization in patients with NET liver metastases.

#102 Presentation and outcome of pancreaticoduodenal tumors in Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) syndrome
Introduction: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) is a rare autosomal dominant condition characterized by the development of parathyroid, pancreaticoduodenal endocrine and pituitaty tumors. Pancreaticduodenal endocrine tumors (PDETs) are a frequent manifestation of MEN 1, with a prevalence ranging from 30 to 75%, and represent a major cause of death in one-third of patients. There is continuing debate on their management, mainly on the optimal surgical strategy, due to their multicentricity and high recurrence rate.

#137 Extensive ""multitasking"" surgery for advanced neuroendocrine tumors is safe and effective
Introduction: Management of advanced NETs is controversial, related to degree of intervention; the pendulum is swinging towards a more aggressive interventional approach. Our Center's philosophy is to offer a systematic, planned multimodality treatment for patients with advanced NETs.

#566 A Case Report of a Patient with Metastatic Cervical Paraganglioma Responding to the Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor Sunitinib
Introduction: Paragangliomas are rare neuroendocrine neoplasms that arise from neural crest cells, and are associated with increased expression of angiogenic growth factors. There have been isolated case reports describing potential efficacy with Sunitinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor.
