Pelvic Carcinoid Tumor Recurrence Treated by Laparosocopic Ultrasonography Guided Laparoscopic Resection Abstract #421

Introduction: Minute retroperitoneal carcinoid tumor recurrences may be difficult to locate during surgery. A laparoscopic approach to re-resection is further hampered by the lack of tactile sense. Laparoscopic Ultrasonography (LUS) is a minimally invasive method which may compensate for the lack of palpation during laparoscopic surgery, and LUS allows for an evaluation of lesions beneath the visible surfaces. LUS is used in the pretherapeutic staging of upper GI tract cancer, and LUS can identify - and if necessary also biopsy - lesions less than 10 mm in diameter.
Aim(s): Use of LUS during laparoscopic resection of a carcinoid tumor recurrence.

#1716 Trans-Anal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS) for Completion Local Excision of Well-Differentiated Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumours.
Introduction: Rectal NETs (R-NETs) <2cm are often amenable to endoscopic resection, but initial resections are often incomplete, and extended monitoring or radical surgery may then be required. Trans-anal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) allows resection of rectal tumours while reducing surgical morbidity. Data on its use in R-NETs is scant.
