Right Hemicolectomy in the Treatment of Patients with Appendiceal Neuroendocrine Tumors: Does Size Matter? Abstract #478

Introduction: A recent study of a small series of patients with appendiceal neuroendocrine tumors (ANETs) fulfilling various criteria for right hemicolectomy (RHC) revealed that approximately 25% may harbor identifiable extra-appendiceal disease. The residual disease might not have been detected using the latest European Neuroendocrine Tumors Society (ENETS) revised pathological criteria.
Aim(s): To evaluate the pathological criteria for RHC in an extended series of patients with ANETs.
Materials and methods: The medical files of 27 consecutive patients who underwent RHC for ANETs were retrospectively assessed.

#70 The validity of Ki-67 as a prognostic indicator in patients with appendiceal carcinoid tumor
Introduction: Carcinoid tumors of the appendix are rare and often discovered incidentally through appendectomy. Most are clinically benign but may be associated with metastatic disease. Ki-67, a nuclear protein structurally associated with chromatin, is an excellent marker for measuring cell proliferation and it has been shown to correlate with the outcome in pancreatic and ileocecal carcinoids.

#606 Laparoscopic Resection of Primary Midgut Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: Laparoscopic intestinal surgery is the preferable technique in the majority of intestinal surgical disorders. However, there is no series reported to date on laparoscopic resection of intestinal midgut carcinoid tumors (MCT) due to the rarity as well as the technical difficulties in resection of the large mesenteric root lymph node mass commonly found in these tumors, and the occasional difficulty in identifying the primary MCT. This is the first series reporting the results of laparoscopic resection of MCT.
