Linked Colour Imaging Increases the Diagnostic Yield of Type 1 Gastric Carcinoid Abstract #2080

Introduction: Type 1 Gastric carcinoid tumours (GCTs) are the most common neuroendocrine tumours of the stomach. Endoscopic diagnosis of Type 1 GCTs remains a challenge. White light endoscopy (WLE) and Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) have failed to demonstrate reliable endoscopic signs of carcinoid.
Aim(s): To evaluate the use of Linked Colour Imaging (LCI); the latest Fujifilm post- processing digital technology for the endoscopic diagnosis of Type 1 GCTs.
Materials and methods: Consecutive patients undergoing endoscopic surveillance of Type 1 GCTs were included. Endoscopic examination was performed using Fujifilm ELUXEOTM EG-760Z gastroscopes with imaging performed in the following sequence; WLE, blue laser imaging (BLI) and finally LCI. Lesion number, endoscopic diagnosis and likert visibility score (1-4; poor-excellent) were recorded for each imaging modality.

#2709 Endoscopic Management and Outcomes of Gastro-Duodenal Neuroendocrine Tumours
Introduction: Gastric and duodenal neuroendocrine tumours are increasing in incidence. ENETS guidelines suggest endoscopic resection of type 1 gastric NENs over 10mm and consider endoscopic resection for duodenal NENs. However, the endoscopic techniques are not clearly mandated. There, is evidence to suggest endoscopic mucosal dissection has higher incidence of R0 resections compared with polypectomy or EMR alone.

Introduction: Gastric NENs are increasingly being diagnosed at endoscopy. The majority of these are type 1 gastric NEN. However, around 10-20% can be type 3 or type 4 Gastric NENs.

#2840 A Real-World Study of Patients with Carcinoid Syndrome at King’s College Hospital on Long-Term Telotristat Therapy
Introduction: Telotristat ethyl is a tryptophan hydroxylase inhibitor that has been shown to be effective against symptoms of carcinoid syndrome refractory to standard somatostatin analogue therapy by directly inhibiting serotonin production. While clinical trials have established short-term efficacy of the drug, we report an exploratory real-world study of 15 patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumours on long-term Telotristat (median duration=8 months).
