#2819 Occurrence of Pancreatic Exocrine Insufficiency in Patients with Advanced Neuroendocrine Tumours Treated with Somatostatin Analogue
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasia (NENs) are heterogeneous tumours caracterized by a relatively indolent rate of growth. Usually, in G1 and G2 GEP-NENs, first-line therapy is SSAs, considering their efficacy, good safety profile, and antiproliferative effects. SSA treatment inhibits the production and excretion of pancreatic enzymes and PEI is known to be an adverse effect of SSA treatment.

#2931 One-Stage Middle-Preserving Pancreatectomy: Indications and Outcomes
Introduction: Parenchyma-sparing surgical techniques are used in pancreatic surgery to preserve organ function. Middle-preserving pancreatectomy (MPP) may be an alternative to total pancreatectomy (TP) in benign/borderline disease that does not affect pancreatic body.

#249 Management of Insulinomas: Perioperative and Long-term Outcomes Following Enucleations and Pancreatic Resections in 198 Patients
Introduction: Enucleation represents the procedure of choice for the treatment of insulinomas. Considering the site and the number of lesions, however, formal pancreatic resection may be necessary.

#1482 Duodenum Preserving Pancreatic Head Resection for Neuroendocrine Pancreatic Tumors of the Head of the Pancreas.
Introduction: Duodenum Preserving Pancreatic Head Resection (DPPHR) is a surgical procedure uncommonly used in benign tumors of the head of the pancreas as alternative to pancreaticoduodenectomy.

#2743 Mimics of Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Identified in a Single Consultation Center between 2009 and 2019
Introduction: Immunohistochemical expression of synaptophysin (SYN), chromogranin (CgA) and cytokeratin are essential for diagnosis of NENs. Non-NENs, however, may occasionally also express NE-markers and cytokeratin and cause diagnostic difficulties.

#2944 Soluble ST2 (sST2) Levels in the Management of Carcinoid Heart Disease in Patients with Neuroendocrine Cancer
Introduction: The identification of a sensitive biomarker to detect the presence and severity of carcinoid heart disease could allow more selective use of clinical and echocardiographic screening. ST2 is a protein belonging to the family of interleukin 1 receptors, present both in the isoform of transmembrane (ST2L) and in the soluble one (sST2). sST2 blocks the anti-inflammatory, anti-hypertrophic, and anti-fibrotic effects of cytokine IL-33 on the myocardium and recent studies have shown that sST2 levels increase in the blood of patients diagnosed with heart failure.

#2971 A Retrospective Multicentre Evaluation of the Outcomes and Management of Carcinoid Heart Disease in Patients with Advanced Midgut NETs: A NET-CONNECT Descriptive Study
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is a poor prognostic factor in neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). However, the extreme variability of diagnostic and treatment approaches reported in literature account for uncertainties on the best management in this selected population.
