Initial Experience of a Novel Endoscopic Full Thickness Resection Device (FTRD) for the Treatment of Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumours Abstract #1819

Introduction: Standard endoscopic resection of rectal NETs is often associated with histological incomplete excision due to submucosal position within the bowel. Endoscopic full thickness resection may allow early definitive management.
Aim(s): To assess the effectiveness of the FTRD in the management of small rectal NETS.
Materials and methods: Review of all rectal NET patients presenting to the regional NET multidisciplinary team meeting between January 2015 and August 2016. Full thickness resection performed using an over-the-scope device.

#1716 Trans-Anal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) for Completion Local Excision of Well-Differentiated Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumours.
Introduction: Rectal NETs (R-NETs) <2cm are often amenable to endoscopic resection, but initial resections are often incomplete, and extended monitoring or radical surgery may then be required. Trans-anal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) allows resection of rectal tumours while reducing surgical morbidity. Data on its use in R-NETs is scant.

#688 Does Small Mean Benign? Not for the WHO 2010 Classification of Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs): A Case Report of a Small Rectal Neuroendocrine Neoplasm (NEN) with Distant Metastatic Spread
Introduction: The gastrointestinal tract is the most common site of primary NETs, just over a quarter of which are rectal. According to the WHO 2000/2004 non-functioning NETs, ≤2cm with no muscularis propria or vascular invasion are classified as well differentiated (WD) NET with benign behavior. However, several case series report metastatic spread from NETs in this category. In 2010, a new WHO classification was introduced with the premise that all NETs were considered malignant with metastatic potential.
