Should Surgery Be Conducted for Small Nonfunctioning Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors: A Systemic Review Abstract #1600

Introduction: Researches showed controversial results regarding whether surgery should be conducted for nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETS) smaller than 2 cm. Both the ENETS and NCCN guidelines recommended observation for selected cases, while none of them pointed out which cases should be chosen.
Aim(s): To find out whether PNETS smaller than 2 cm need surgery and which subgroup would benefit the most from surgery.
Materials and methods: MEDLINE, EMBASE and CENTRAL were searched until 2016/08/30, with primary outcome being overall survival, and secondary outcome being progression free survival, disease specific survival and disease recurrence/progression.
