#984 Superior Mesenteric Vein Stenting for Management of Complications of Mesenteric Desmoplasia in Midgut Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Mesenteric fibrosis is a cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with midgut neuroendocrine tumors (mNETs). It may cause occlusion of the superior mesenteric vein (SMV), which can be associated with development ascites and mesenteric and small bowel varices (SBVs) leading to occult gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding.

#1006 The Use of Endoluminal Stents to Overcome Vascular Obstruction Arising from Mesenteric and Retroperitoneal Neuroendocrine Metastases
Introduction: Gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP-NET) often metastasise to lymph nodes. Nodal metastases from neuroendocrine tumors in the distal small intestine commonly (>50%) develop in the mesentery and are often centred at the mesenteric root surrounding the major vessels supplying the bowel. Compression of these vessels, by the nodes or associated fibrosis, can lead to severe symptoms such as pain (secondary to bowel ischaemia ), ascites (from superior mesenteric vein obstruction) and bowel perforation. In view of the often indolent nature of GEP-NET, symptoms from lymph node masses can persist for years, causing significant morbidity and early mortality.

#339 Focal Nesidioblastosis in an Adult
Introduction: Nesidioblastosis is an uncommon cause of persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (PHH) in adults. Although it is well-described in infants, the pathophysiology in adults is poorly understood.

#655 Enucleation of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms Combined with Pre-Operative Wirsung Stenting, Intra-Operative Ultrasounds and Absorbable Fibrin Sealant Patch Application.
Introduction: Parenchyma-sparing surgery is indicated in small pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (pNENs), however, it is often followed by high morbidity rates.

#1655 A Case Report of Bicaval Stents and Inferior Vena Cava Valve Implantation to Control Carcinoid Symptoms in Order to Safely Allow Surgical Valve Replacement
Introduction: Surgery for severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a high-risk procedure. Therefore transcatheter valve implantation into the vena cava can be performed as an attempt to reduce the complications and symptoms associated with this.

#594 Neurokinin A Levels Predict Survival in Patients with Well-Differentiated Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Recent European investigations demonstrated that persistently elevated (> 50 pg/ml) plasma neurokinin A (NKA) levels are associated with poor short-term survival in patients with midgut neuroendocrine tumors (NETS).

#28 Prognostic Clinicopathologic Factors in Longitudinally Followed Patients with Metastatic Small Bowel Carcinoid
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors demonstrate heterogeneous behavior based upon site of origin and specific histology. Even after controlling for anatomic location, disease stage and histologic grade, registry studies show persistent diversity of outcome in patients with midgut carcinoid.

#76 Role of contrast-enhanced ultrasonography in the differential diagnosis of the pancreatic and hepatic lesions
Introduction: Contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) is a new promising tool for the characterization of pancreatic lesions. This technique allows for highlighting the micro-vascularization of a lesion, especially with the use of second generation contrast media, characterized by harmonic responses at low acoustic pressures. Pancreatic endocrine tumors (PET)s were reported to have a peculiar behavior at CEUS, consisting of a higher enhancement compared to normal pancreas in the arterial phase and a rapid washout.
