Clinical Characteristics and Survival of Neuroendocrine Tumors of Unknown Primary Abstract #684

Introduction: NETs of unknown primary account for 10-15% of NETs. There is limited published literature on this group of NETs.
Aim(s): We performed a retrospective analysis of patients with NET of unknown primary managed at a single centre over a 20-year period (1990-2010).
Materials and methods: Patients were identified from the NET database at Kings College Hospital. Patients referred as unknown primary were excluded if the primary site was later identified.

#893 The Role of Primary Resection and Hepatic Resection in the Management of Metastatic Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors with Irresectable Liver Metastases
Introduction: More than 40% of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET) patients have liver metastases (LM) at diagnosis. Whilst it is agreed that, where possible, curative surgery offers the best outcomes, the role of debulking surgery in the context of irresectable LM remains unclear.

#376 Resection of Primary Tumor Improves Survival in Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Single Center Experience
Introduction: Small bowel neuroendocrine tumors are uncommon tumors with an incidence of <0.5-1 per 100,000 population/year. We report on the survival rates of patients who had the primary tumor resected, to see whether primary tumor removal improves outcome.
