Transarterial (Chemo)embolization for Patients with Liver Metastasis of Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #926

Introduction: Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) are slowly growing tumors with an indolent course. NETs often present with liver metastasis, and most of these tumors are inoperable at the time of presentation. Transarterial (chemo)embolization [TA(C)E] is widely available to manage liver metastasis of NET.
Aim(s): To evaluate the efficacy and adverse events in patients with NET treated with TA(C)E.
Materials and methods: Forty-three patients with metastatic neuroendocrine tumors who underwent TA(C)E between December 1999 and June 2013 in National Cancer Center Hospital and National Cancer Center Hospital East were included in this retrospective study. We assessed the tumor response, disease control rate, progression-free survival, and adverse events of TA(C)E.

Introduction: Liver metastases are common in patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), which are associated with the prognosis. Transarterial embolization (TAE) is one of the options for selective therapy in patients with multiple unresectable progressive liver metastases after chemotherapy.

#3032 Lung Side and Site: The Importance of Location and the Prognostic Implication in Lung Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Lung neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are classified as typical (TC) and atypical carcinoids (AT), according to their mitotic count and the presence of necrosis. However, a role for tumor side (right vs left) and location (central vs peripheric) has not been established so far.

Introduction: Debulking surgery, TAE and TACE procedures are undertaken in patients with metastatic NETs. Reducing the physical burden of disease may prolong survival and can improve the quality of life of patients. However, there is only limited quality of life data available after surgery despite the fact that is has been used routinely for many years.

#2879 Lung Neuroendocrine Tumors: Experience of Medical Oncology Department of Hospital 1st November 1954 Oran
Introduction: Lung neuroendocrine tumors account for 25% of all neuroendocrine tumors. It is a heterogeneous group that meets morphological criteria; immunohistochemical and molecular; defining 4 groups: Typical and atypical carcinoid tumors, neuroendocrine carcinomas with large cell and small cells. Carcinoid syndrome is rare in these tumors and the treatment is based on surgery for localized forms and multimodal treatment for metastatic forms.
