Resection of the Primary Tumor Prior to Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy Improves Treatment Response and Progression-free Survival in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors with Unresectable Liver Metastases Abstract #1336

Introduction: A low burden of disease represents an independent favorable prognostic factor of response to peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) in patients affected by gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. However it is not clear whether this is due to a lower diffusion of the disease or thanks to debulking surgery
Aim(s): To ascertain whether resection of the primary tumor prior to PRRT could have an impact on response to PRRT and on progression-free survival in patients with G1-G2 metastatic pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs)
Materials and methods: From 1996 to 2013 those patients diagnosed with G1-G2 pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor (PNET), and synchronous unresectable liver metastases who were eligible to receive upfront PRRT were included in the study. Two groups of comparison were identified: those submitted for primary tumor resection before PRRT and those who were not

Introduction: In neuroendocrine tumor (NET), complete surgery could better the prognosis of this disease: radioguided surgery (RGS) with beta-radioisotopes, as 90Y, is a novel approach focused on developing a new probe which, detecting electrons and operating with low background, provides a clearer delineation of the margins of lesions with low radiation exposition for surgeons.

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.
