Prognostic Value of Lymph Node Status and Extent of Lymphadenectomy in Non Functioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: Outcome Analysis from 378 Consecutive Resections in a High-Volume Institution Abstract #2228

Introduction: The optimal management of regional lymph nodes during resections of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pNETs) remains controversial. Conflicting data exist on predictors of LN metastases (LNM) and their impact on survival
Aim(s): to determine factors associated with LNM and the prognostic value of N1 status. The main effort is to understand the oncological appropriateness of the different surgical procedures stratified for pathologic N status of pNETs
Materials and methods: A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database of patients who underwent surgery for locoregional NF-pNETs between 2000 and 2016 in Verona Pancreas Institute was performed. Logistic regression was used to identify predictors of LNM. Disease-free survival (DFS) were calculated using Kaplan Meier method
