Number and Localization of Positive Lymph Nodes Correlate with Recurrence in Nonfunctioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms: Implications for Surgery, Staging and Surveillance Abstract #1514

Introduction: Lymph Nodes involvement is a powerful prognostic factor for nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NF-PNEN)
Aim(s): To assess the prognostic value of the number and localization of positive lymph-nodes (PLN)
Materials and methods: Among 370 pts submitted to surgery for PNEN (2000-2014) we selected those who underwent radical (R0 or R1) pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) for NF- PNEN with no distant metastases (M0) or inherited syndrome

Introduction: Prognosis of pNENs depends on staging and grading, based on the cyto-histological Ki67 labelling; EUS-FNA is considered the gold standard technique to obtain it in pre-therapeutic setting

Introduction: The presence of nodal metastasis is one of the most important predictive factors for recurrence after radical surgery for nonfunctioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NF-PanNEN). Nevertheless, it is not clear which is the best diagnostic examination to identify preoperatively lymphnodal metastasis.

Introduction: The most appropriate staging system of metastatic lymph nodes (N) for resected pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) remains unclear, especially regarding those resected by distal pancreatectomy (DP).

#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.
