Introduction: The role of surgery for advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (pNET) requiring extended resections is not well-defined.
Aim(s): To clarify whether aggressive surgical approach influenced long-term results and to identifiy survival prognostic factors in light of the 2010 WHO classification.
Materials and methods: Between 01/2000 and 03/2012, 37 patients with pNET underwent pancreatic resection alone (Group I:27 patients) or associated to extended resection (Group II:10 patients). All tumors were reclassified according to the 2010 WHO classification.
