Introduction: The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and ENETS have independently introduced a novel TNM staging classification for jejunal-ileal NETs.
Aim(s): To assess the prognostic relevance of the AJCC/ENETS staging classification for midgut (jejunal-ileal) NETs.
Materials and methods: Patients with jejunal-ileal NETs treated at the Moffitt Cancer Center between 2000 and 2010 were assigned stages (I-IV) based on the AJCC/ENETS TNM staging classification. Overall survival from time of initial diagnosis was measured, and statistical significance was calculated using the log-rank test.
