Access to Care and Outcomes for Neuroendocrine Tumors: Does Socio-Economic Status Matter? A Population-Based Analysis. Abstract #1349

Introduction: Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) lack standardized care. Differences in socioeconomic status (SES) worsen the impact of non-standardized care.
Aim(s): We examined the impact of SES on NET peri-diagnostic care patterns and outcomes.
Materials and methods: All adults with NET identified from a cancer registry (1994-2009) were divided into low (1st-2nd income quintiles) and high SES (3rd-5th). We compared peri-diagnostic healthcare utilization (-60 days to +6 months), metastatic recurrence, and overall survival (OS).

#1716 Trans-Anal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) for Completion Local Excision of Well-Differentiated Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumours.
Introduction: Rectal NETs (R-NETs) <2cm are often amenable to endoscopic resection, but initial resections are often incomplete, and extended monitoring or radical surgery may then be required. Trans-anal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) allows resection of rectal tumours while reducing surgical morbidity. Data on its use in R-NETs is scant.

#39 Specialist dietetic input and nutritional outcomes in Neuroendocrine Tumour Patients
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of tumors that are complex to manage and require a multidisciplinary approach. The most common primary sites are the small intestine and pancreas. The disease itself, as well as sequelae from surgery and medical therapy, can have a negative impact on patients’ nutritional status. Weight loss is known to be a poor prognostic indicator.

#128 Multidisciplinary reference centers: the need for combined expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of malignancies with increasing incidence (Yao et al. J Clin Oncol 2008;26:3063–72). Multidisciplinary reference centers (MRCs) can potentially offer better clinical outcomes by integrating and coordinating expert care from many specialties, reducing delays in treatments and referrals, and allowing for accrual to clinical trials. MRCs have achieved improved outcomes in ovarian, breast and lung cancers (Pollock. Ann Surg 2008;248:510–6; Gabel et al. Cancer 1997;79:2380–4; Forrest et al. Br J Cancer 2005;93:977–8). Despite this, MRCs focusing on NETs are uncommon.
