Endoscopic ultrasound of 66 insulinomas Abstract #91

Introduction: Ultrasound is the virtual representation of the morphology of organs and tissues. Endoscopic ultrasound can be used in detailed scanning of pancreas and preoperative topical diagnostics of insulinomas. Insulinoma requires surgical treatment in all cases. This fact allows control of preoperative diagnostic methods.
Aim(s): To define a capability of endoscopic ultrasound in preoperative detection of insulinoma, determination of its localization in the pancreas and also stereotopography; to analyze echo-features of pancreatic insulinomas (homogeneity and level of echogeneity) for conducting of morpho-ultrasound correlation.
Materials and methods: Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) was done over seven years (2003-09) in two endoscopic departments with the use of echoendoscopes Olympus GF UM 20, GF UM 160, GF UE 160 (with Aloka &-10) for 61 patients (12 men, 49 women; mean age 43 years, range 12 to 69 years) with sporadic insulinomas (46 patients) and associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) syndrome (15). All patients were operated in three adult and one pediatric center with the consecutive immunohistochemical studies for surgical specimens – 66 insulinomas were detected (uncinate process 9, head 20, neck 6, body 13, tail 18). The mean size of these tumors was 17 mm (range 9 to 35mm). Among them there were five patients, ineffectively previously operated in other centers.

#126 Assessment of the proliferation marker Ki-67 by endoscopic ultrasound guided-Fine Needle Aspiration (EUS-FNA) in pancreatic endocrine tumors: A comparative analysis with histology of the surgical specimen
Introduction: Assessment of the proliferative index by Ki-67 immuno-labelling is an important prognostic parameter for the biologic behavior of digestive neuroendocrine tumors, usually established on the histological specimen obtained after surgery or macro-biopsy. However, small pancreatic endocrine tumors (PET) are more and more often recognized by CT/MRI and diagnosed by EUS. The value of Ki-67 labelling index (Ki-67-LI) on fine needle aspiration (FNA) is not well-established in this setting, although regularly assessed.

#135 The importance of endoscopic ultrasound in detecting recurrent gastrinoma in a case of MEN 1
Introduction: Approximately 25-30% of patients have gastrinomas as part of the inherited syndrome Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia 1 (MEN 1). Gastrinomas occur in the pancreas, duodenum or peripancreatic lymph nodes. Diagnosis is made by clinical history, gastroscopy, and measurement of serum gastrin, gastric juice pH, CT scan, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS). Localization of gastrinomas in patients with MEN 1 is challenging due to their small size, frequent duodenal location, and multiplicity.

#2285 The Role of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Endoscopic Ultrasound Imaging in the Diagnosis and Management of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pNET) in Patients with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 (MEN1)
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) in patients with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome type 1 (MEN 1) are frequently multiple and occur with an incidence that varies from 30-80% in different series. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and techniques such as endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) are useful tools for tumor localization, size assessment and follow-up.
