Long-Term Follow-Up of Resected Small (< 2 Cm) Asymptomatic Sporadic Non-Functioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Correlation Between Type of Resection, Histopathologic Features, and Outcome Abstract #1174

Introduction: The surgical management of small, incidentally found sporadic non-functioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (NF-PNET) is controversial
Aim(s): Evaluate the long-term outcome after surgical resection (SR) of sporadic, asymptomatic NF-PNET <2 cm, stratifying the results by SR type and histopathologic features
Materials and methods: Patients resected between June 1997 and November 2009 at our Institution (minimum follow-up of 60 months) were retrieved from an electronic database and analyzed retrospectively

#1902 18F-FDG Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography Positivity in Small Incidentally-Found Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Could It Be Considered a Predictor of Malignancy?
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.

#1457 Small and Large Incidental Non-Hyperfunctiong Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Spectrum of Magnetic Resonance Imaging Features
Introduction: The improvement of imaging techniques significantly increased the detection of small incidental non-hyperfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NF-PanNENs). Most NF-PanNENs <2 cm are likely benign lesions and a non-operative approach could be advocated in selected cases for these lesions.

Introduction: Preoperative radiologic size of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) is a crucial parameter in selection of appropriate treatment especially for incidentally discovered lesions (<20 mm). The current guideline bases the therapeutic recommendations on the pathologic size.
