Development of Effective Prophylaxis Against Intraoperative Carcinoid Crisis Abstract #1064

Introduction: Patients with foregut and midgut neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) can experience life-threatening carcinoid crises during anesthesia. The prophylactic use of a pre-, intra- and post-operative high dose continuous octreotide infusion was evaluated for its ability to prevent carcinoid crises during cytoreductive surgeries.
Aim(s): To develop an effective anesthesia protocol to prevent intraoperative carcinoid crises
Materials and methods: Anesthesia and surgical records of 188 patients who underwent a total of 228 cytoreductive surgeries for stage IV, small bowel NETs were reviewed. All patients received a 500 microgram/hour infusion of octreotide pre-, intra- and post-operatively. Patients that experienced intraoperative hyper- or hypotension, profound tachycardia, or a “crisis” according to the operative note were also reviewed.

#796 Somatostatin Analogues for Preventing Carcinoid Crisis
Introduction: Carcinoid crisis is a life-threating syndrome of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and is characterized by dramatic blood pressure fluctuation, arrhythmias, and bronchospasm. Somatostatin analogues (SSTA) have been recommended for prophylactic administration before provocative procedures.

#2010 A case of Carcinoid Crisis Despite High Dose Somatostatin Analogue Therapy Peri-operatively
Introduction: Carcinoid crisis is a life threatening endocrine emergency. Somatostatin analogues (SSA) are recommended as prophylactic administration before invasive procedures. It remains unclear whether there is an optimal dose of prophylactic somatostatin analogue therapy in the peri-operative period.

#70 The validity of Ki-67 as a prognostic indicator in patients with appendiceal carcinoid tumor
Introduction: Carcinoid tumors of the appendix are rare and often discovered incidentally through appendectomy. Most are clinically benign but may be associated with metastatic disease. Ki-67, a nuclear protein structurally associated with chromatin, is an excellent marker for measuring cell proliferation and it has been shown to correlate with the outcome in pancreatic and ileocecal carcinoids.
