Are Cystic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors an Indolent Entity? Results for a Single Institutional Surgical Series Abstract #1832

Introduction: Cystic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (CPanNET) are an uncommon variant of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs). Due to their rarity, there is a lack of knowledge with regards to clinical features and prognosis.
Aim(s): Better define this entity
Materials and methods: The prospectively maintained database of a high-volume Institution was queried and 46 resected CPanNETs were detected from 1995 to 2015. Clinical and pathological features and survival outcomes of CPanNET were described and matched with a population of 92 solid PanNETs (SPanNETs) for comparison

#1457 Small and Large Incidental Non-Hyperfunctiong Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Spectrum of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Features
Introduction: The improvement of imaging techniques significantly increased the detection of small incidental non-hyperfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NF-PanNENs). Most NF-PanNENs <2 cm are likely benign lesions and a non-operative approach could be advocated in selected cases for these lesions.

Introduction: Surgical management of small (<2 cm), incidentally found sporadic non functioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NF-PanNETs) is controversial. Normal practice in our Institution is to observe them when asymptomatic, without worrying features at imaging and without uptake at F-PET/CT.

Introduction: Preoperative radiologic size of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) is a crucial parameter in selection of appropriate treatment especially for incidentally discovered lesions (<20 mm). The current guideline bases the therapeutic recommendations on the pathologic size.
