Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Ampulla of Vater: Clinicopathological Analysis of Nine Cases Abstract #729

Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) of the ampulla of Vater (AV) are rare and heterogeneous and little is known about their biological behavior.
Aim(s): To evaluate the prognostic significance of the ENETS grading and TNM staging system and the 2010 WHO classification.
Materials and methods: A total of nine patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms of the ampulla of Vater treated with surgery at a single center were retrospectively analyzed over a 13-year period. Based on grading scheme with mitotic count and Ki-67 index, the ENETS system identifies three tumor categories: grade 1 (Ki67 <2%), grade 2 (K-i67 2-20%) and grade 3 (Ki-67 >20%). The 2010 WHO classification distinguishes between well-differentiated tumors (NET) grade 1 or 2 and poorly differentiated carcinomas (NEC) grade 3.

Introduction: Lung neuroendocrine tumors account for 25% of all neuroendocrine tumors. It is a heterogeneous group that meets morphological criteria; immunohistochemical and molecular; defining 4 groups: Typical and atypical carcinoid tumors, neuroendocrine carcinomas with large cell and small cells. Carcinoid syndrome is rare in these tumors and the treatment is based on surgery for localized forms and multimodal treatment for metastatic forms.

#2989 Different Social Media Neuroendocrine Tumor Indexing Strategies Used by Physicians and Advocacy Groups
Introduction: The use of Twitter to disseminate medical content has increased over the last decade. Although Twitter activity by oncologists is clustered around international conferences, advocacy groups have different temporal social media patterns. Furthermore, given the non-standardized method of indexing tweets using Twitter hashtags, it can be difficult to follow the full breadth of a topic.
