Quality of Life in Neuroendocrine Tumor Patients Compared to the General Population Abstract #841

Introduction: Literature on NET patients' quality of life (QOL) is scarce.
Aim(s): To investigate QOL in NET patients after peptide receptor radionuclide therapy and to compare their scores to the general population, adjusting for age and gender.
Materials and methods: NET patients admitted to the University Clinic for Nuclear Medicine were consecutively included in the study. QOL was assessed with the EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire Core-30, which is the most widely used cancer-specific QOL instrument. Patients were compared to an Austrian general population sample (N=411) using non-parametric and variance-analytic methods (α-level 5%).

#2955 Development of an EORTC Quality of Life Questionnaire for Patients with Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours: Phases 1-3
Introduction: Measuring quality of life (QoL) in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (pNET) involves assessing issues from symptoms, disease and treatment. The validated gastrointestinal NETs module (EORTC QLQ-GINET21) is used with EORTC QLQ-C30 but there are concerns it inadequately measures QoL in pNET.

Introduction: Patients with metastatic small-intestinal neuroendocrine tumours (NET) have been shown to have a reduced quality of life compared to the general population and many have disabling symptoms during somatostatin analogue (SSA) treatment.

Introduction: Overall survival for patients with small intestinal neuroendocrine tumors (siNETs) is often long even with metastatic disease, making quality of life issues especially relevant. The impact of surgery on their quality of life is unknown.

#3037 Effects of Debulking Surgery, Transarterial Embolisation (TAE) and Transarterial Chemoembolisation (TACE) on Quality of Life in Patients with Metastatic Ileal and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs)
Introduction: Debulking surgery, TAE and TACE procedures are undertaken in patients with metastatic NETs. Reducing the physical burden of disease may prolong survival and can improve the quality of life of patients. However, there is only limited quality of life data available after surgery despite the fact that is has been used routinely for many years.
