#523 Metastatic Midgut Carcinoid Tumors: 20-years Experience in a Single Center
Introduction: The prognosis of metastatic midgut carcinoids has improved during the last decade, due to the increasing number of therapeutic options.

#12 Chromogranin A as a predictor of progression, regression or stable disease in ileo-cecal (midgut) carcinoid tumors
Introduction: A general characteristic for NETs is their expression of certain proteins, such as chromogranin A (CgA), which is released from the dense core vesicles of NE cells, occasionally together with cell specific hormones, such as gastrin and serotonin. Plasma CgA seems to be closely related to tumor burden of intestinal carcinoid tumors in humans.

#556 Unresectable Mesenteric Midgut NETs: Are They a Unique Prognostic Category?
Introduction: Patients with lymph-node positive midgut NETs (stage IIIB) represent a heterogeneous group. While some have microscopic lymph node involvement on pathological evaluation, others may develop large, desmoplastic, unresectable tumors in the root of the mesentery.

#595 A Single Fasting Plasma 5-HIAA Value Correlates with 24-Hour Urinary 5-HIAA Values and Other Biomarkers in Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs)
Introduction: 5-hydoxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) is used for the evaluation of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), however, the current 5-HIAA assay requires a 24-hour urine collection which is inconvenient.

#606 Laparoscopic Resection of Primary Midgut Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: Laparoscopic intestinal surgery is the preferable technique in the majority of intestinal surgical disorders. However, there is no series reported to date on laparoscopic resection of intestinal midgut carcinoid tumors (MCT) due to the rarity as well as the technical difficulties in resection of the large mesenteric root lymph node mass commonly found in these tumors, and the occasional difficulty in identifying the primary MCT. This is the first series reporting the results of laparoscopic resection of MCT.

#9 Case Management of Metastatic carcinoid of the Foregut,Midgut and Hindgut:the relevance of Ki-67 prognostication
Introduction: The predictive value of tumor grade in the prognosis of carcinoid is insufficient and somehow misleading. The grade and differentiation in carcinoid tumors must be seen in conjunction with the Ki-67 index. The Ki-67 protein is a cellular marker for proliferation, present during all active phases of the cell cycle (G1, S, G2 and mitosis) and absent from resting cells (G0). It is therefore an excellent marker to determine the growth fraction of a given cell population. The Ki-67 labelling index is often correlated with the clinical course of carcinoid.

#471 Alterations of Global and Gene-Specific DNA Methylation in Midgut Carcinoids

#914 French Cohort of Familial Midgut Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: Familial Midgut Carcinoid Tumors (FMCT) are a rare and poorly described entity defined by the occurrence of a midgut carcinoid tumor in at least two first-degree relatives.

#2061 Midgut Carcinoids Presenting as Subacute Intestinal Obstruction. A Case Report of Territory Care Hospital.
Introduction: Midgut carcinoids are well differentiated neuroendocrine tumors possessing secretary properties releasing various peptides. Over the past few decades, there incidence has been increased. Since countries like Pakistan lack the diagnostic facilities, they are often misdiagnosed.
