Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Radiofrequency Ablation for Pancreatic Neoplasms Abstract #1562

Introduction: Endoscopic ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation (EUS-RFA) is a recognised therapeutic option for a range of neoplasms.
Aim(s): To ascertain the feasibility, safety and early results of EUS-RFA for pancreatic neoplasms with a novel probe.
Materials and methods: Prospective, multi-centre pilot trial examining the Habib TM EUS-RFA catheter – a novel probe comprising a 1Fr wire of 190cm working length which can be inserted via the biopsy channel of an echoendoscope.

#699 Ethanol Ablation in an 81-Year-Old Patient with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (Islet Cell Tumor) and Severe Hypoglycemia – A Case Study.
Introduction: The key clinical problem in patients with islet cell tumors are persistent hypoglycemia episodes, which are particularly dangerous in the elderly since neuroglycopenia may be the cause of stroke.

#110 Slug represents an important regulator of E-cadherin expression in neuroendocrine tumor cells of the pancreas
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas form an inhomogenous group of epithelial neoplasms. They differ from other types of pancreatic cancers by showing an extended survival of patients, which is due to a mostly slow proliferation rate of the tumor. However, some of these neuroendocrine tumors are characterized by an early onset of metastases, which cannot be predicted by any available method. The epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) represents a central part of cell migration and metastasis. During EMT, cells loosen their cellular contacts, leave the tissue, and become migrating single cells. One of the integral compounds of cell adhesion represents the E-cadherin adhesion module, which contains mostly E-cadherin and several catenins. A loss of this adhesion module is associated with tumor progression, migration and metastasis in many types of cancer.

#867 Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinoma (MANECs): A Rare and Challenging Subgroup of Neuroendocrine Neoplasia
Introduction: Mixed Adenoneuroendocrine Carcinomas (MANECs) are rare entities in which at least 30% of neoplastic cells are neuroendocrine in nature (WHO 2010 classification). They result either from two independent lesions that merge together or are unique lesions with different cell populations intermingled.

#1283 Heterotopic Pancreas Mimicking a Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumor: A Case Report
Introduction: Heterotopic pancreas, defined as an atypical presence of pancreatic tissue with no anatomic or vascular continuity with the pancreas, is relatively rare. In most cases it is diagnosed during autopsy or incidentally, since it becomes symptomatic only in few cases, causing bleeding, pain or obstruction.

#1689 The Prognostic Value of the Expression of Cytokeratin 7 and 19 in Lungs and Pancreas Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: The expression of cytokeratins (CK) 7,19 rarely occurs in the low grade neuroendocrine tumors (NET) of lung and pancreas. It is known that part of the low grade typical (TC) and atypical (ATС) carcinoids of lung and pancreas (pNET-G1,G2) can progress quickly and to metastasize. It is important to distinguish NET with a less differentiated cells immunophentype.
