Surgical Treatment of Non-functioning Neuroendocrine Tumors of the Pancreas Abstract #197

Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas have a more favorable course and prognosis compared to pancreatic adenocarcinoma and occupy approximately 1-2% of all oncologic pathology of the pancreas.
Aim(s): To present our experience of surgical treatment of non-functioning neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas (nfP-NETs).
Materials and methods: Sixty-eight patients underwent surgery for nfP-NETs from January 2004 to August 2010. Pancreaticoduodenectomy – 28 (41.2%) patients, distal pancreatectomy – 12 (17.6%), spleen-preserving – 7 (10.3%), laparoscopic left side pancreatectomy – 3 (4.4%), partial pancreatectomy – 9 (13.2%), palliate operation – 6 (8.8%), explorative laparotomy – 3 (4.4%).
