Neuroendocrine Tumors of The Appendix: A Study of Presentation, Investigation and Management Abstract #934

Introduction: Causes of appendicitis include infection, inflammatory bowel disease, faecoliths and neoplasm. Rarer causes of obstruction, such as neoplasm, may present in an identical manner to common causes, such as infection, and remain undiagnosed without histologcal analysis of appendicaecal tissue. Neuroendocrine tumors of the appendix are most commonly detected incidentally by histological analysis of appendicaecal tissue following appendicectomy.
Aim(s): To study the presentation, investigation and management of NETs detected following appendicectomy in East Kent University Hospital Trust. To compare investigation and management to ENETS Guidelines.
Materials and methods: Cases over a 5-year period (September 2008-August 2013) across three hospital sites were identified from trust histology databases. Presenting features, laboratory investigations, histological findings and follow-up imaging/surgery were identified from patient notes and computer databases.

#2057 Morphological Factors Related to Nodal Metastases in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of the Appendix. A Multicenter Retrospective Study
Introduction: Appendiceal NETs are usually diagnosed accidentally after appendectomy; the indications for right hemicolectomy are currently based on several parameters (tumor size, grading, Ki-67, localization, mesoappendiceal invasion, lympho-vascular infiltration). Available guidelines are based on scarce evidence inferred by small, retrospective, single institution studies.
