#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.

#526 Association Between Activin A & NT-pro-BNP in Carcinoid Heart Disease and Intestinal Desmoplasia in Patients with Metastatic Midgut and Pelvic NET
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) involves cardiac valvular fibrosis and volume overload. N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) is released by the myocardium in response to increased wall stress in CHD. Activin A is a member of the TGF-ß superfamily involved in fibrogenesis.

#984 Superior Mesenteric Vein Stenting for Management of Complications of Mesenteric Desmoplasia in Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Mesenteric fibrosis is a cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with midgut neuroendocrine tumors (mNETs). It may cause occlusion of the superior mesenteric vein (SMV), which can be associated with development ascites and mesenteric and small bowel varices (SBVs) leading to occult gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding.

#1746 Clinical Outcomes in Small Neuroendocrine Tumours Treated with Intestinal Surgery in Tertiary Centre
Introduction: Patients with Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumours (SBNET) may require small bowel surgery either as an emergency or electively.Robust data from Tertiary Referral Centres (TRC) are lacking.

#1072 Predictive Factors for Antiproliferative Activity of Octreotide LAR in Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: The antiproliferative activity of Octreotide LAR in Neuroendocrine Tumors(NETs) has been demonstrated by small retrospective studies and confirmed by a prospective phase III trial(PROMID).However,there are limited data about the duration and predictors of response.
