#230 Long-term Follow-up of Tissue Valve Prostheses in Carcinoid Heart Disease
Introduction: Development of carcinoid heart disease (CHD) increases morbidity and mortality. Cardiac valve replacement surgery improves functional class, but tissue prosthesis degeneration can occur early in CHD.

#36 A monocentric analysis of patients with pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors over 15 years: long term survival and life quality dependent from histological subtypes and surgical management
Introduction: Pulmonary neuroendocrine tumors substantially differ from epithelial tumors in terms of tumor biology and prognosis. In specialized interdisciplinary centers, a broad therapeutical armentarium can be used to achieve optimal treatment.

#146 Recurrence characteristics in resected pulmonary typical and atypical carcinoids
Introduction: Pulmonary typical and atypical carcinoids are widely considered indolent, although they can metastasize even with a very long relapse free interval. No standard follow-up strategy exists after a radical resection.

#2002 Pulmonary Function Test Physiology and Progression in Diffuse Idiopathic Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Cell Hyperplasia
Introduction: Diffuse idiopathic pulmonary neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia (DIPNECH) is a rare condition characterised by a generalised proliferation of pulmonary neuroendocrine cells within the respiratory epithelium. Little is known of its affects on pulmonary function both at the time of diagnosis and prospectively.

#105 A pilot study using biochemical markers to predict acrcinoid heart disease in patients with carcinoid disease
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) affects up to 15-70% of patients with carcinoid disease. Recent ENETS guidelines recommend regular echocardiographic assessment to screen for CHD. Chromogranin A (CgA) is a peptide widely used to monitor carcinoid disease progression. Neurokinin A is a tachykinin which may be a more sensitive measure of carcinoid disease progression and prognosis. N-terminal pro Brain Naturetic Peptide is used as a screening tool for heart failure and recent results suggest utility in the diagnosis of CHD.

#737 Impact of Ki-67 Proliferative Index on Survival in Patients with Typical and Atypical Pulmonary Carcinoids
Introduction: Currently pulmonary carcinoids are separated into typical and atypical tumors based on mitotic count and presence of necrosis, according to the WHO classification. Whereas for GEP NETs the ENETS Guidelines have been incorporated into the WHO classification and grading is based on mitotic counts and Ki-67 index, the use of the Ki-67 index for grading pulmonary carcinoids is still under debate.

#1518 Significance of Preoperative FDG-PET/CT Scan in Patients with Pulmonary Carcinoid Tumours
Introduction: FDG uptake on PET/CT scan has been shown to be of prognostic significance in patients (pts) with metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (NET).

#1762 Prevalence of Carcinoid Heart Disease in Patients with Disseminated Small Intestinal NET
Introduction: In patients with small intestinal neuroendocrine tumours (SI-NETs), serotonin may induce fibrosis and lead to carcinoid heart disease (CHD) with right sided valvular dysfunction.

#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.
