Robot-assisted Distal Pancreatectomy for Insulinoma. A Case Report Abstract #235

Introduction: A literature review on laparoscopic pancreatic resection was conducted with emphasis on its applicability and safety. The outcome of the procedures for pancreatic insulinoma is similar to open surgery.
Aim(s): We analyzed the feasibility and safety of patients undergoing robot-assisted distal pancreatic resection for insulinoma.
Materials and methods: A 59 y.o. female patient with 11 years history of epilepsy was referred to our department. A plasma glucose level obtained two weeks ago during epileptic seizure was 2.0 mmol/l. We found elevation of plasma insulin and plasma C-peptide level. US, MDCT, Endo-US were negative. Only MRI localized a 11 mm tumor-like area in the pancreatic tail.

#74 Non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors: diagnostic criteria and surgical treatment
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors were considered rare tumors several years ago. Several reports published recently have observed increased incidence of NETs suggesting that NETs are more prevalent than previously reported. Non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumors (NFPETs), better defined as non-hyperfunctioning, are characterized by the absence of clinical or biochemical evidence of hormone hypersecretion. From the clinical standpoint, NFPETs can be either occasionally encountered or manifest clinically similar pancreatic tumors. Since both NFPET treatment and prognosis significantly differ from that of ductal adenocarcinoma and other pancreatic malignant tumors, an accurate differential diagnosis is needed.

#1844 Selective Approach in Surgical Treatment of Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Surgical resection is the main method in treating of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) . Contemporary perioperative diagnostic can help using selective approaches, to perform organ-preserving (OP) procedures including operations with miniinvasive techniques (MI) such as robot – assisted (RA) or laparoscopic (La).
