#15 Gastroduodenal ulceration associated with radioembolization for the treatment of liver malignancies, a newly observed complication: Institutional experience and review of the literature
Introduction: Microsphere radioembolization is a method of delivering radiation therapy directly to tumors, thereby minimizing toxicity to adjacent structures. Despite the relatively high precision of this modality, numerous adverse effects have been recognized. One particularly untoward complication is the development of severe gastroduodenal ulceration.

#37 Gastric GIST with synchronous neuroendocrine tumor of the pancreas, Case Report and Literature Review
Introduction: The Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST) are the most common mesenchymal tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. These are rare tumors with an incidence of 15 new cases per million per year. They often occur in individuals over the age of 40 years, without gender predominance. The clinical behavior is variable and benign tumors are the most common. They can develop anywhere in the GI tract, but are more frequent in the stomach and small intestine. The primary treatment, when located, is the surgical resection, which can be complemented with the use of imatinib.
The occurrence of neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas is rare, representing 1-5% of pancreatic cancers, and it is estimated that its incidence does not exceed 5 to one million. The tumors considered nonfunctioning (15-32% of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors) are not associated with any syndrome, and are usually incidental. They have a slight predominance in males, and are more frequent in the 6th decade of life. Nonfunctioning tumors of islet cells are virtually all malignant tumors, and the treatment consists of surgical resection.

#368 The Role of Image and Chromogranin A Level at Diagnosis: A Portuguese Review of 19 Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) constitute a heterogeneous group of neoplasms. Biochemical neuroendocrine markers offer high sensitivity in establishing the diagnosis and, if correlated with image assessment, can provide important prognostic information.

#1148 Ki67 as a Prognostic Marker in Neuroendocrine Tumours: A Systematic Review of the Literature and Quantitative Synthesis of 5 year Survival Data
Introduction: The ENETS guidelines classify Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (GEP NETs) according to the histological assessment of tumour mitotic count or Ki67 labelling index (LI) on paraffin-embedded tissue, because proliferation rate has been shown to strongly correlate with prognosis. Since the guidelines were published, Ki67 has been established as the more reproducible measure, and further large case series have been reported.
