Risk and Protective Factors for Midgut Carcinoid Tumours: A Case-Control Study of Prospectively Evaluated Patients Abstract #1103

Introduction: The incidence of midgut carcinoid tumours is on the rise, but few studies have investigated risk factors for their occurrence.
Aim(s): We therefore aimed at clarifying risk factors for the occurrence of sporadic midgut carcinoid tumours.
Materials and methods: Multicentre case-control (C-C) study. Patients prospectively evaluated at partecipating centres. Controls with non-neoplastic/non-chronic disorders seen at GI outpatients clinics, matched (4:1) for sex and age

#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.
