Non-Functioning Neuroendocrine Pancreatic Neoplasia as an Incidental Finding–Surgery? Abstract #734

Introduction: The incidence of pancreatic non-functioning neuroendocrine neoplasms (PNF-NENs) has been increasing, mainly due to small incidentalomas. Pancreatic surgery complications are still responsible for significant morbidity.
Aim(s): Case report.
Materials and methods: A retrospective review of patient data.

#83 Surgical treatment of duodenopancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1): a Dutch consensus statement
Introduction: Duodenopancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) are the most important cause of MEN 1-related death. Surgery is the only curative treatment, but controversy exists on the optimal strategy. Recent guidelines on pNETs have limited recommendations specific for MEN 1. Therefore, a Dutch multidisciplinary consensus meeting was organized.

#324 Well-differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor of Uncertain Behavior: A Case Report
Introduction: A small number of Pancreatic Endocrine Tumors (PET) are well-differentiated tumors(WDET) showing benign or uncertain behavior. Prognosis mainly depends on the presence/absence of liver/bone metastasis.
