Double Balloon Enteroscopy In Detecting Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (SB-NENS) Abstract #1280

Introduction: Data describing the effectiveness of double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE) in the detection of small bowel neuroendocrine neoplasms (SB-NENs) are scanty.
Aim(s): Present series was aimed at reporting the experience at a single referral centre for NENs.
Materials and methods: All consecutive patients with a suspected SB-NEN selected for diagnostic DBE were enrolled.

#141 Incidence of second primary tumors in patients with neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Based on epidemiological data from SEER 1950-1999, 22.4% cases of non-carcinoid second primary tumors have been described in patients diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumors. The incidence of this type of tumors varies, depending on the series assessed.

#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.

#681 The Use of Capsule Endoscopy for Assessment of Neuroendocrine Tumors of Unknown Primary Tumor Location
Introduction: Recent studies suggest that capsule endoscopy (CE) should be implemented in diagnostic work-up in patients suspected to have small bowel (SB) tumors. SB accounts for the primary tumor site in 80%-85% of patients with intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NET). In 10%-15% of patients diagnosed with metastasized NET, the primary tumor site remains obscure.

#839 Complete Mesenterial Venous Obstruction – A Clinical Syndrome Unique to Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Small Bowel
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms of the small bowel are mostly advanced or metastasized at diagnosis. Metastases typically occur in the mesenteric root and liver.

#857 Video Capsule Endoscopy as a Tool to Detect Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Recent studies suggest that video capsule endoscopy (CE) should be implemented in diagnostic work-up in patients with suspected small bowel tumors. Small bowel is the primary site in 80%-85% of patients with intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (NET). In 10%-15% of patients diagnosed with metastasized NET, the localization of the primary tumors remains obscure.
