#133 Effectiveness of transarterial embolization of liver neuroendocrine metastases
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) with diffuse liver metastases have a poor prognosis and prove difficult to palliate. Somatostatin analogues and chemotherapy have been used but often are poorly tolerated and may not provide symptom relief. Transarterial Embolization (TAE) is being increasingly used to improve symptom control and reduce tumor size. We looked at the last 5-year experience of TAE in patients with hepatic metastases from neuroendocrine tumors.

#2058 On-going Evaluation of the Use of Resources and the Costs (UR/C) Associated with Controlled or Uncontrolled Carcinoid Syndrome (CS) in Patients (pts) with Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs): RECOSY Study Design
Introduction: NET pts have high rates of mortality and morbidity, as wells as decreased health-related quality of life (HRQoL) due to CS. Though there is little research on the economic impact of CS, recent studies show that some symptoms, i.e. diarrhoea, are associated with higher healthcare expenditure and use of resources.
