Neuroendocrine Carcinomas (NEC) of the Pancreas: A Land of Hope? Abstract #515

Aim(s): To evaluate treatment and survival of pancreatic NEC.
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of 49 patients with NEC defined by the 2010 WHO classification observed between 1990 and 2011.

#16 Endoglin as indicator of metastatic neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas are rare, highly vascularized tumors. Endoglin, a Transforming Growth Factor-β co-receptor, is a marker for angiogenic endothelial cells. Angiogenesis is required for tumor progression and the development of metastases. Recently, endoglin expression was found to be a prognostic marker in pancreatic carcinomas. However, the role of endoglin in neuroendocrine pancreatic tumors has so far not been studied.

#353 Pattern and Clinical Predictors of Lymph Node Involvement in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Pancreas
Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (PNENs) are often indolent without pathological lymph node metastasis (pN1). Therefore, in patients with low risk of pN1, a lymphadenectomy could be avoided.
