Determinants of Long-Term Outcome for Rectal NETs from a Large German Multicentre Cohort Abstract #561

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) of the rectum are a rare subgroup of NETs with mostly favorable prognosis. Some, however, tend to have a poorer outcome.
Aim(s): Analysis of potential prognostic factors among rectal NETs and correlation with overall survival using the large multicentric cohort of the German NET Registry.
Materials and methods: The German NET Registry (G-NET-Reg) collects data from histologically proven NETs diagnosed since 1999 from 35 centers in Germany. Histopathological parameters and clinical data, as well as information on overall and NET-specific outcome of solely rectal NETs, were obtained and statistically analyzed with regard to prognosis.

Introduction: Prognosis of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) has been difficult to predict due to heterogenous tumor biology, various classification systems, and lack of reliable and recent data due to the rarity of these tumors.

Introduction: Grading (G) of neuroendocrine tumors (NET) according to ENETS is based on immunhistochemical staining of Ki-67 antigen. Close margins between G1 and G2 NET often fail to differ in survival analysis.
