#2924 Everolimus in Patients with Advanced Neuroendocrine Neoplasia: A Real-World Study and Analysis of Long Responders
Introduction: Everolimus is a valid therapeutic option for neuroendocrine tumors (NETs); however, data regarding the long responsders in a real-world setting, outside regulatory trials, are scanty.

#2753 Risk of PRRT-Associated Bowel Obstruction in Patients with Mesenteric/Peritoneal Disease and Potential Role of Corticosteroids in Treatment
Introduction: Although radiation-induced mesenteritis or peritonitis can potentially exacerbate risk of bowel obstruction, there are no data in the literature on incidence of intestinal obstruction related to peptide receptor radiotherapy (PRRT)

#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.

#2766 Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Arising in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Clinical Features of 69 Cases and Literature Review
Introduction: An increased prevalence of neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) has been reported in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). However, we know little about IBD complicating NENs.

#2833 Surgical Correction of Carcinoid Heart Disease Improves Liver Function and 5-Hydroxyindoleacetic Acid Levels
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumours of the gastrointestinal tract cause carcinoid syndrome and carcinoid heart disease. These tumours secrete serotonin, which can bind to heart valves and cause fibrosis and valve incompetence. Most cases involve the tricuspid valve +/- pulmonary valve. Medical management comprises diuretics for fluid overload and somatostatin analogues to reduce circulating serotonin. Definitive treatment is heart-valve replacement surgery which improves exercise tolerance but has high perioperative mortality. We have previously reported that valve-replacement surgery can reduce 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) levels, reflecting a decline in hormone activity.
