Pancreatic Angiography with Selective Intra-Arterial Calcium Stimulation for the Localization of Insulinomas: A Case Report. Abstract #695

Introduction: Surgery is the gold standard treatment of insulinomas. Before planning the surgical procedure, the tumor must be precisely localized. Usually, the combination of Endoscopic Ultrasound, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging localize more than 80% of the tumors. But due to its small size, other more sophisticated techniques must be performed in order to improve the diagnosis accuracy. Some of them, like angiography, are invasive.
Aim(s): There is a wide discrepancy with regard to the effectiveness of this technique, relying the success mostly on the team's experience. We report a case in which after failing in its location with all the standard procedures, we conducted a Pancreatic Angiography with Selective Intra-Arterial calcium Stimulation and Venous Insulin Sampling during surgery.
Materials and methods: The procedure was performed according to the standardized protocol in our hospital.

#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.
