Introduction: Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pNETs) represent an increasing indication for pancreatic resection, but there are only few data about their possible recurrence after surgery.
Aim(s): Aim of this study is to describe the frequency, timing, and patterns of recurrence after resection for pNETs, with consequent implications for postoperative follow-up.
Materials and methods: A retrospective analysis of pathologically confirmed pNETs treated between 1990 and 2015 at the department of General and Pancreatic Surgery, University of Verona Hospital Trust, was conducted. Predictors of recurrence were assessed by univariate and multivariate analysis. Survival analysis was conducted with Kaplan-Meier and conditional survival (CS) methods.
