Management of Patients with Multiple Pancreatic Tumors Abstract #223

Introduction: MEN-1 syndrome is a rather rare disease. It is very complicated to manage this group of patients because of the multiple pancreatic lesions and high frequency of nesidioblastosis.
Aim(s): To present treatment tactics in a case of multiple neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas.
Materials and methods: A 30-year-old male with hipoglycemia was treated. After imaging procedures, multiple panreatic tumors were found: three in the head, one in the body, two in the tail. Patient also had primary hyperparathyroidism, urolithiasis. Arterial stimulated blood sampling showed that head tumors were non-functional and distal resection of the pancreas was performed.

#50 Clinical-morphology correlation in diagnostics and evaluating surgery results of pancreatic insulinoma and nesidiobastosis
Introduction: Organic hyperinsulinism syndrome (OHS) is revealed in 85% cases of pancreas insulinoma. Nesidioblastosis (NB) induces OHS in 15% of the cases. Surgical cure provides all symptoms of insulinoma disappearing, while cytoreductive operation results in considerable improvement of life quality. There is no intraoperative opportunity to reveal insulinoma grade, even if an urgent biopsy is performed. Thus, it is essential to determine the cause of OHS and to apply the surgical cure method during the preoperational period, thereby improving the long-term prognosis.
