The Role of Hepatic Trans-Arterial Chemoembolization in Metastatic Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma: A Specialist Center Experience and Review of the Literature Abstract #1632

Introduction: Liver metastases are relatively common in patients with metastatic medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC), carrying a negative impact on disease prognosis. The options for selective therapy of liver metastases in MTC patients are limited to catheter guided procedures such as trans-arterial chemoembolization (TACE). Data regarding the effectiveness and safety of this procedure in MTC is limited.
Aim(s): To explore the clinical outcome, survival and safety profile of TACE for liver metastases in a group of MTC patients.
Materials and methods: Retrospective case series of patients treated at a single tertiary university medical centre from 2005 to 2015.

#3064 ALPPS for Neuroendocrine Liver Metastases Not Suitable for Conventional Hepatic Resection - Interim Analysis of the International ALPPS Registry
Introduction: Surgery is the most effective treatment option for neuroendocrine liver metastases (NELM). However, the majority of patients with NELM do not have disease that is resectable using conventional methods. Associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) is a relatively novel two-stage strategy in hepatic surgery.
