ALPPS as a Technique to Minimize Small For Size Syndrome after Major Hepatectomy for Neuroendocrine Tumour Metastases. Abstract #2158

Introduction: Liver resection has emerged as an effective treatment for secondary liver neuroendocrine tumours. “Associated liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy” (ALPPS) allows resection of liver tumours in 2 steps.
Aim(s): We present our experience in ALPPS procedure as a method which can minimize small for size syndrome, and provide an oncological benefit to borderline resectable neuroendocrine tumours within acceptable safety profile.
Materials and methods: 4 patients underwent ALPPS procedure for clearance of the metastatic liver disease. Segments I, IV-VIII were resected for each patient. 2 of the patients had bi-lobar disease. Clearance to the future liver remnant (FLR) was achieved with non-anatomical liver resection in 1 case and with irreversible electroporation to the other as the lesion was adjacent to the left hepatic vein during the 1st stage of the ALPPS procedure. 2 patients underwent ALPPS as a salvage procedure after failed portal vein embolisation and ligation respectively.

#3064 ALPPS for Neuroendocrine Liver Metastases Not Suitable for Conventional Hepatic Resection - Interim Analysis of the International ALPPS Registry
Introduction: Surgery is the most effective treatment option for neuroendocrine liver metastases (NELM). However, the majority of patients with NELM do not have disease that is resectable using conventional methods. Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a relatively novel two-stage strategy in hepatic surgery.

Introduction: Liver metastasis (LM) are very frequent (65-95%) and represent a crucial prognostic factor in patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP NENs). The paucity of relevant experimental models has limited the understanding of the pathophysiology of NENs and the development of efficient therapeutic strategies

#2879 Lung Neuroendocrine Tumors: Experience of Medical Oncology Department of Hospital 1st November 1954 Oran
Introduction: Lung neuroendocrine tumors account for 25% of all neuroendocrine tumors. It is a heterogeneous group that meets morphological criteria; immunohistochemical and molecular; defining 4 groups: Typical and atypical carcinoid tumors, neuroendocrine carcinomas with large cell and small cells. Carcinoid syndrome is rare in these tumors and the treatment is based on surgery for localized forms and multimodal treatment for metastatic forms.

#2989 Different Social Media Neuroendocrine Tumor Indexing Strategies Used by Physicians and Advocacy Groups
Introduction: The use of Twitter to disseminate medical content has increased over the last decade. Although Twitter activity by oncologists is clustered around international conferences, advocacy groups have different temporal social media patterns. Furthermore, given the non-standardized method of indexing tweets using Twitter hashtags, it can be difficult to follow the full breadth of a topic.

#2709 Endoscopic Management and Outcomes of Gastro-Duodenal Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Gastric and duodenal neuroendocrine tumours are increasing in incidence. ENETS guidelines suggest endoscopic resection of type 1 gastric NENs over 10mm and consider endoscopic resection for duodenal NENs. However, the endoscopic techniques are not clearly mandated. There, is evidence to suggest endoscopic mucosal dissection has higher incidence of R0 resections compared with polypectomy or EMR alone.
