Prior Surgical Resection and Ga-68-DOTANOC PET/CT Imaging-Based Parameters: Do These Impact Outcomes in Grade II Gastroentero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (GEP-NETs) Abstract #2935

Introduction: Grade 2 GEP-NETs have inherent tumor heterogeneity seen with positive expression of somatostatin (SSTR) and glucose (GLUT) receptors. Prior surgical resection and imaging parameters on Ga-68 DOTANOC PET/C are well-established variable impacting prognosis in well-differentiated grade 1 NETs. Since the degree of differentiation is variable in Grade 2 NETs, these parameters have not been studied.
Aim(s): To evaluate prognostic role of prior surgical resection and Ga 68 DOTANOC PETCT parameters in patients with grade II GEP-NETs.
Materials and methods: We included 85 patients with WHO grade II GEP- NET who underwent Ga-68 DOTANOC PETCT. In 46/85 patients, surgical resection of primary was performed. Patients were stratified into 2 groups based on SUVmax of target lesion, liver involvement on DOTANOC PET and surgical resection of primary. Progression free survival was calculated from the date of DOTANOC PETCT done to last date of clinical/ radiological progression or death due to disease.

#2951 Analysis of Discordance between Biopsy Grade and Surgical Pathology Grade in Resected PanNEN Patients
Introduction: In PanNEN cases, treatment strategies are decided by tumor localization, volume and grade. In unresectable or metastatic cases, tumor grade is determined by biopsy specimen obtained from EUS-FNA and diagnostic accuracy of biopsy according to WHO classification 2017 is important for decision making of treatment.

#2961 Our Experience Using a New Scoring System to Detect Disease Recurrence after Curative Surgical Resection of Well-Differentiated Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: For patients with nonfunctioning pNET  ≥20 mm in size without distant metastasis, complete surgical resection is recommended as the primary curative strategy. Effective follow‐up programs are designed to detect recurrence at an early stage, given that treatment of limited disease has the most favorable outcome. However, data on post‐curative surgical recurrence remains limited, making it challenging to determine the best follow‐up strategy and to detect the best treatment options as an adjuvant therapy for selected patients.

#3064 ALPPS for Neuroendocrine Liver Metastases Not Suitable for Conventional Hepatic Resection - Interim Analysis of the International ALPPS Registry
Introduction: Surgery is the most effective treatment option for neuroendocrine liver metastases (NELM). However, the majority of patients with NELM do not have disease that is resectable using conventional methods. Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a relatively novel two-stage strategy in hepatic surgery.
