#47 Plasma CCN2/connective tissue growth factor is associated with right ventricular dysfunction in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Carcinoid heart disease (CHD) is a known complication of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), particularly of those arising from the small intestine, appendix and proximal colon (previously known as mid-gut carcinoids). CHD is characterized by right heart fibrotic lesions and has traditionally been defined by the degree of valvular involvement, most commonly in the form of tricuspid regurgitation. Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction due to mural involvement may also be a manifestation. Connective tissue growth factor (CCN2) is upregulated in many fibrotic disorders. Increased tumor expression of CCN2 has been shown in patients with small intestinal NETs associated with peritoneal fibrosis. At present, its role in carcinoid heart disease is unknown.

#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.

#1077 Signs of Carcinoid Heart Disease on Staging CT: Which Predictors are Helpful?
Introduction: In patients with functionally active neueroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) carcinoid heart disease presenting primarily with tricuspid valve regurgitation (TR) is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Early diagnosis is crucial to improve prognosis.

#1025 Evaluation of Patients (pts) with Neuroendocrine Tumors at First Cardiological Consultation with Echocardiographic (Echo) Method. Argentum Group
Introduction: The incidence of carcinoid tumors is approximately 1 in 75,000 of the population of whom 50% develop carcinoid syndrome. Once carcinoid syndrome has developed, approximately 50% of these patients develop carcinoid heart disease which typically causes abnormalities in the right side of the heart.

#1246 68 Yr Female with a Growing Inoperable Myocardial Metastase
Introduction: Two recent studies shows that cardiac metastases occur rather frequently, 13% in a population of serotoninproducing NETs(Noordzij 2014) and 4% in our own patient kohort of ileal NETs(Calissendorff 2014).

#1414 Non-functioning Adrenal Composite Pheochromocytoma-Ganglioneuroma Simultaneous with Subclinical Cushing's Syndrome Due to Contralateral Adrenal Hyperplasia - An Unusual Presentation
Introduction: “Composite” pheochromocytoma is a rare tumor, consisting of pheochromocytoma and neuroblastic tumors. The definite diagnosis is histological. Subclinical Cushing's syndrome refers to autonomous glucocorticoid production without specific signs and symptoms of Cushing's syndrome.

#2135 Is the Classification of Functioning-PanNET/Non-Functioning PanNET Properly? Insulinoma/Non-Insulinoma Is More Suitable to Distinguish the Clinicopathological and Prognosis Difference of Localized Insulinoma
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PanNET) is classified into Functioning (F-PanNET) and Non-functioning (NF-PanNET) by hormone secretion. But insulinoma is slowly proliferating with unique features compared with Non-insulinoma F-PanNET (NiF-PanNET).

#159 Detection of cardiac metastases in patients with neuroendocrine tumors: comparison of Ga-68 DOTA-SMS-R PET/CT, cardiac MRI, CT scan and 2D echocardiography
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumor metastases to the heart have been sparsely reported in literature. There is as of yet no detailed study on the best imaging method for the detection of this rare site of metastases.

#223 Management of Patients with Multiple Pancreatic Tumors
Introduction: MEN-1 syndrome is a rather rare disease. It is very complicated to manage this group of patients because of the multiple pancreatic lesions and high frequency of nesidioblastosis.
