FNA Under Percutaneous Ultrasound or Endoscopic Ultrasound for Pre-Operative Diagnosis and Grading Determination in PanNET. Are They Reliable to Define a Tailored Therapy? Abstract #1889

Introduction: Fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNA)under percutaneous ultrasound guided (pUS)or endoscopic ultrasound(EUS)control is a minimally invasive technique allowing diagnosis and grading determination in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNET).Obtaining a correct cytological diagnosis is crucial for a tailored therapy
Aim(s): To determine the diagnostic accuracy of cytological samples obtained by EUS-FNA and pUS-FNA in PanNET
Materials and methods: Data of patients submitted to pancreatic resection for PanNET from 2010 to 2016 at the Authors Institution were retrospectively reviewed.A comparison between pre-operative cytology and final histology was performed

Introduction: Surgical management of small (<2 cm), incidentally found sporadic non functioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NF-PanNETs) is controversial. Normal practice in our Institution is to observe them when asymptomatic, without worrying features at imaging and without uptake at F-PET/CT.

#1609 Prognostic Relevance of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Grading on EUS-FNA
Introduction: Since WHO 2010, resected pNETs are graded as G1, G2 or G3 using the Ki67-LI. EUS-FNA is often used for diagnosis but few studies have assessed its value for grading.
