Gastroduodenal ulceration associated with radioembolization for the treatment of liver malignancies, a newly observed complication: Institutional experience and review of the literature Abstract #15

Introduction: Microsphere radioembolization is a method of delivering radiation therapy directly to tumors, thereby minimizing toxicity to adjacent structures. Despite the relatively high precision of this modality, numerous adverse effects have been recognized. One particularly untoward complication is the development of severe gastroduodenal ulceration.
Aim(s): Since the utilization of this modality in the treatment of primary and metastatic malignancies of the liver continues to rise, we aim to promote awareness of this complication and to advance the understanding of the pathogenesis, incidence, diagnosis, and treatment of this entity.
Materials and methods: Our institutional experience of gastroduodenal ulceration in patients treated with radioembolization was analyzed and the existing literature on the subject was reviewed.

#2786 Outcome of NET Liver Metastases Treated by TAE Using Microspheres
Introduction: Liver metastases are common in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), which are associated with the prognosis. Transarterial embolization (TAE) is one of the options for selective therapy in patients with multiple unresectable progressive liver metastases after chemotherapy.

#3050 Radioembolization for Neuroendocrine Liver Metastases: An Institutional Case Series, Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Introduction: Neuroendocrine liver metastases are clinically challenging and often non-resectable due to their frequent disseminated distribution. Radioembolisation with yttrium-90 labelled microspheres represents an emerging modality for NELM.

#25 Predictors of response to radio-embolization (TheraSphere ®) treatment of neuro-endocrine liver metastasis
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) frequently metastasize to the liver. Most patients have diffuse, and therefore incurable, disease. NET liver metastasis has been shown to respond to yttrium-90 microspheres therapy. This study aims to define factors that predict response to radio-embolization in patients with NET liver metastases.

#28 Prognostic Clinicopathologic Factors in Longitudinally Followed Patients with Metastatic Small Bowel Carcinoid
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors demonstrate heterogeneous behavior based upon site of origin and specific histology. Even after controlling for anatomic location, disease stage and histologic grade, registry studies show persistent diversity of outcome in patients with midgut carcinoid.

#307 Prognostic Features in Patients with Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumor Undergoing Y-90 Embolization
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are rare neoplasms originating from enterochromaffin cells. NET patients with liver metastases frequently undergo Yttrium-90 (Y90) embolization.
