Effects of Debulking Surgery, Transarterial Embolisation (TAE) and Transarterial Chemoembolisation (TACE) on Quality of Life in Patients with Metastatic Ileal and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs) Abstract #3037

Introduction: Debulking surgery, TAE and TACE procedures are undertaken in patients with metastatic NETs. Reducing the physical burden of disease may prolong survival and can improve the quality of life of patients. However, there is only limited quality of life data available after surgery despite the fact that is has been used routinely for many years.
Aim(s): To evaluate the impact of debulking surgery and liver directed therapy (TACE, TAE) in metastatic NETs, on quality of life (QoL). Additionally, to see how long it takes for quality of life to improve after treatment.
Materials and methods: A prospective longitudinal cohort study, from October 2017, was undertaken at University Hospital Southampton. Patients who were due to receive debulking surgery, TAE or TACE were included. EORTC QLQ-C30, EORTC QLQ-GINET21 and EQ-5D were used pre-op, post-op and at 3 monthly intervals up to 18 months. Participants were a consecutive cohort of patients who were approached and willing to give consent.

#2797 Assessment of Quality of Life in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumours: Results of a Systematic Literature Review
Introduction: Health related quality of life (HRQoL) is increasingly important as a concept reflecting the patients’ perspective in conjunction with the disease presentation severity and treatment. Understanding the impact of treatment on neuroendocrine tumour (NET) patients’ HRQoL is paramount given the nature of the disease.
