Laparoscopic Surgery of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Results From a Tertiary Care Institution Abstract #485

Introduction: There are only a few series describing feasibility and short-term-outcome of laparoscopic surgery of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNET).
Aim(s): To describe the feasibility and short-term-outcome of laparoscopic panreatic surgery (LPS) of pNET.
Materials and methods: All patients with pNET who underwent laparoscopic surgery at a single institution between 1997 and 2011 were included.

#2682 PAK4-NAMPT Dual Inhibition as a Novel Strategy for Therapy Resistant Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) remain an unmet clinical need. In this study, we show that targeting both nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (NAMPT) and p21-activated kinase 4 (PAK4) could become a synthetic lethal strategy for PNET.

#2706 A New Possibility in SI-NET Surgery by Using a New β- Probe and 90Y-DOTATOC: A Pilot Study
Introduction: In neuroendocrine tumor (NET), complete surgery could better the prognosis of this disease: radioguided surgery (RGS) with beta-radioisotopes, as 90Y, is a novel approach focused on developing a new probe which, detecting electrons and operating with low background, provides a clearer delineation of the margins of lesions with low radiation exposition for surgeons.
