Introduction: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNET) are rare, heterogeneous and challenging neoplasms. Surgical resection is the only curative treatment. Recurrence can occur even after years. Diagnosis of malignancy is difficult so further studies are necessary to identify prognostic criteria.
Aim(s): To evaluate prognostic factors related with disease recurrence and mortality in patients with PNET resected in our institution.
Materials and methods: Retrospective study of patients with PNET who underwent surgery in our hospital between January 2000 and July 2017. We analyse clinical, surgical (technique, complications) and pathological (size, stage, grade, Ki67, lymph node, metastasis) parameters to identify recurrence risk factors.
