Successfull Endoscopic Ultrasound-Guided Alcoholic Ablation of Insulinoma Abstract #192

Introduction: Insulinomas are rare endocrine tumors. The golden treatment is surgical resection. EUS-guided alcohol ablation is a new promising method to treat those patients who are not surgical candidates.
Aim(s): We wanted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of EUS-guided alcohol ablation of an insulinoma in a patient who is not a candidate for surgery.
Materials and methods: An 89-year-old male patient was referred to our hospital because of numerous cases of hypoglycaemia. Laboratory findings proved that the patient suffered from an insulinoma. Serious cardial disease excluded surgical treatment. 3.5 ml of 98% alcohol was injected into a 6 mm insulinoma guided by EUS.

#1101 Malignant Insulinoma in a Patient with Diabetes: Response to Treatment and a Return to Insulin Injections
Introduction: A 64 year old male with a fourteen year history of diabetes had been treated with insulin for eight years. Over a four week period he noticed that his insulin requirements were reducing and he experienced episodes of symptomatic hypoglycaemia and upper abdominal pain. Following referral a CT scan was performed which revealed numerous liver metastases and a 8.4 by 5.2 cm mass replacing the pancreas. Liver biopsy diagnosed a neuroendocrine tumour with a MIB-1 index of up to 18%. The tumour was somatostatin receptor positive as evidenced by an octreotide scan.
