#1154 Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) Radioembolisation with 90 Yttrium in Patients with Unresectable Liver Neuroendocrine Metastases in a Specialized Center. An Initial Report
Introduction: Most patients with neuroendocrine tumors present liver metastases at some point of the clinical course. Liver directed treatment, such as 90 Yttrium is a method of treatment used in patients with non-resectable liver lesions, which is effective in the control of symptoms and tumor growth.

#686 Hepatic Arterial Embolization for Gastroenteropancreatic NET Liver Metastases
Introduction: Selective hepatic arterial embolization (HAE) with polyvinyl alcohol particles has been shown to be equivalent to chemoembolization for patients with hepatic gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine metastases. There remains debate about its clinical effectiveness and which patients benefit from treatment.

#27 Combined treatment of rapidly progressing neuroendocrine tumors by transcatheter arterial chemoembolisation of the liver and peptide-receptor radiotherapy is save and effective. Report of thirty consecutive patients
Introduction: Patients with rapidly progressing neuroendocrine tumors presenting with high tumor load and/or severe clinical syndromes are clinically challenging and with limited life expectany. Peptide receptor radiotherapy (PRRT) and transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) have demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of neuroendocrine tumors. However, there are no reports that both therapies have been applied in combination.

#1061 Transcatheter Arterial Chemoembolization for Unresectable Metastatic Hepatic Lesions of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: The blood supply of metastatic hepatic neuroendocrine tumors is mainly supplied by hepatic arteries. For unresectable metastatic NETs, selective embolisation of the hepatic arteries may be therapeutic.
