Minimal Risk of Persistent or Recurrent Hypoglycemia after MEN1-Related Insulinoma Surgery. A Large International Cohort Study Abstract #1769

Introduction: Current literature states that 15-30% of the MEN1 patients suffer from hypoglycemia after insulinoma surgery.
Aim(s): To determine the optimal surgical strategy to treat MEN1 related insulinomas.
Materials and methods: A total of 96 MEN1 patients with insulinomas underwent surgery between 1990-2015 at one of the 46 participating hospitals from Europe and North America. Post-operative hypoglycemia, complications, and pancreatic insufficiency were captured.

#1438 An Unusual Phenotype of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 with a Small Intestine Neuroendocrine Tumor Associated with Large Deletion of the MEN1 Gene
Introduction: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant inherited tumor syndrome that is caused by germline mutations in the Menin suppressor gene on chromosome 11q13. Small intestine neuroendocrine neoplasias (SI-NEN) are currently not considered to be part of the phenotype of the MEN1-syndrome.

#1306 The Role of Ga68-DOTATOC-PET-CT in Routine Screening of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1
Introduction: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 is a tumor syndrome characterized by NENs of the pancreas, duodenum, parathyroid, pituitary, adrenal, thymus and bronchi. Gene carriers are recommended participation in prospective screening programs at expert centers. Ga68-DOTATOC-PET-CT is an increasingly used very sensitive imaging technique for GEP-NENs.
