Analysis of Discordance between Biopsy Grade and Surgical Pathology Grade in Resected PanNEN Patients Abstract #2951

Introduction: In PanNEN cases, treatment strategies are decided by tumor localization, volume and grade. In unresectable or metastatic cases, tumor grade is determined by biopsy specimen obtained from EUS-FNA and diagnostic accuracy of biopsy according to WHO classification 2017 is important for decision making of treatment.
Aim(s): In this study, we analyzed EUS-FNA-based Ki-67 and compared to that of surgical resection specimen to estimate the factors influencing accuracy of the EUS-FNA-based Ki-67.
Materials and methods: We performed a single-institutional, retrospective review. Patients underwent resection of primary PanNEN lesions at our institution from Apr. 2011 to Sep. 2019 are included. In 53 patients underwent surgical resection of the primary PanNEN lesions, 43 patients (81%) underwent pre-operational biopsy.

#126 Assessment of the proliferation marker Ki-67 by endoscopic ultrasound guided-Fine Needle Aspiration (EUS-FNA) in pancreatic endocrine tumors: A comparative analysis with histology of the surgical specimen
Introduction: Assessment of the proliferative index by Ki-67 immuno-labelling is an important prognostic parameter for the biologic behavior of digestive neuroendocrine tumors, usually established on the histological specimen obtained after surgery or macro-biopsy. However, small pancreatic endocrine tumors (PET) are more and more often recognized by CT/MRI and diagnosed by EUS. The value of Ki-67 labelling index (Ki-67-LI) on fine needle aspiration (FNA) is not well-established in this setting, although regularly assessed.

#813 Comparison of Manual and Automatic Methods of Ki-67 Proliferation Index for Neuroendocrine Tumors: The Development and Validation of a Novel Digital Pathology Tool (Ki-67Counter)
Introduction: Ki-67 proliferation index is an increasingly important biomarker used to grade neuroendocrine tumors. Manual counting methods are laborious and subject to inter- and intra-observer variability. Digital counting methods hold promise for fast and reproducible indices, however, they are fraught with technical difficulties.
