#1873 Meta-Analysis of Liver Resection versus Nonsurgical Treatments for Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors with Liver Metastases
Introduction: Available data comparing the efficacy of different treatment regiments are rarely found. No meta-analyses have compared live resection with other nonsurgical treatments in resectable liver metastases from pNETs.

#1674 Meta-Analysis of Recurrence after Curative Surgery of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors.
Introduction: Follow-up after curative surgery for pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET) is designed to detect recurrence, however reliable recurrence rates are difficult to deduct from literature. Without this knowledge, appropriate follow-up regimens and indications for adjuvant treatment remain unclear.

#300 Association Between Time to Disease Progression Endpoints and Overall Survival in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: While the association between time to disease progression (TDP) and overall survival (OS) has been examined in a variety of cancers, it has not been assessed in trials of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs).

#484 Diagnostic Accuracy of Gallium-68 Somatostatin Receptor Positron Emission Tomography in Patients with Thoracic and Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Meta-Analysis
Introduction: Gallium-68 somatostatin receptor (SMSR) positron emission tomography (PET) is a valuable diagnostic tool for patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET). To date, a meta-analysis about the diagnostic accuracy of this functional imaging method is lacking.

#1140 Incremental Benefit of Preoperative Endoscopic Ultrasound for the Detection of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Meta-Analysis
Introduction: Current guidelines recommend computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging as the initial imaging modalities for the work-up of suspected pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs).

#619 Diagnostic Accuracy of F-18-DOPA PET or PET/CT in Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Meta-Analysis
Introduction: A specific feature of NETs is amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation; this is the rationale for using PET with F-18-DOPA, a cathecholamine precursor, in diagnosis of NETs.

#2036 Extra-Pulmonary Colonic Tuberculosis Presenting as Intestinal Obstruction in a Patient with Disseminated Carcinoid Tumour
Introduction: Extra-pulmonary tuberculosis is responsible for 13% of all tuberculosis cases in Brazil. The incidence of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis is mainly linked to HIV epidemic but recent meta-analysis also correlated it with other diseases like diabetes and mental disorders.
