Multivisceral Transplantation and Vascularised Sentinel Forearm Flap for a Metastatic Gut-Derived Neuroendocrine Tumour: Follow-up Abstract #1558

Introduction: We previously reported the first documented case of a novel approach in a patient with extensive mesenteric metastases from a small bowel (SB) NET: this combined multivisceral transplantation (MVT) and a vascularised sentinel forearm flap (VSFF) from the same donor.
Aim(s): We re-present this case after prolonged follow-up.
Materials and methods: A male patient was diagnosed with a well-differentiated Grade 1 (Ki67 <1%) NET when aged 44. Initial biochemistry was: chromogranin A 395pmol/L (normal <60), chromogranin B 349pmol/L (normal <150), 24hr urinary 5-HIAA 643 ┬Ámol/L (normal <40). Pre-operative 68-Ga DOTATATE PET/CT demonstrated uptake in an aorto-caval lymph node and bulky mesenteric disease, which was confirmed at laparotomy as stage IV disease encasing the mesenteric root. Numerous lymph nodes and multifocal primary tumour (7 sub-centimetre lesions) were also found at surgery.

Introduction: Non-resectable tumours involving the mesenteric root are an indication for intestinal and multivisceral transplantation (MVT). Vascularised sentinel forearm flaps (VSFF) offer possibilities for monitoring graft rejection and tailoring immunosuppression (IS) regimens.

#3058 Diagnosis and Assessment of Effectiveness of Surgical Resection of Small Bowel Neuroendocrine Tumours: The Roles of Circulating MicroRNAs
Introduction: MicroRNAs (miRNA) are small noncoding RNA molecules implicated in the pathophysiology of myriad neoplasms. Clinically useful biomarkers are needed in SB NET to ascertain disease aggressiveness, select treatment strategy, detect early recurrence and monitor response.

#3064 ALPPS for Neuroendocrine Liver Metastases Not Suitable for Conventional Hepatic Resection - Interim Analysis of the International ALPPS Registry
Introduction: Surgery is the most effective treatment option for neuroendocrine liver metastases (NELM). However, the majority of patients with NELM do not have disease that is resectable using conventional methods. Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a relatively novel two-stage strategy in hepatic surgery.
