Transcatheter Arterial Embolization (TAE) of NEN Metastases: Efficacy and Predictors of Response Abstract #2889

Introduction: Transcatheter-Arterial embolization (TAE) is an established regional, palliative treatment option for liver metastases in patients (pts) with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs).
Aim(s): To assess the safety/efficacy of TAE and identify predictors of treatment outcomes in NEN pts.
Materials and methods: A single-institution retrospective analysis reviewed 74 patients with histologically proven NENs. Symptoms’ scores, biomarkers [Chromogranin-A (CGA), 5-Hydroxyindolacetic acid (5-HIAA)], cross-sectional imaging, previous treatments were assessed. Symptoms’ progression was defined as 50% increase of symptoms’ score. Radiological progression was based on RECIST.

#2886 Risk Factors for Short Recurrence-Free Survivals after Resection of PanNET Liver Metastasis: Single Institutional Analysis
Introduction: Although the treatment of PanNEN has improved survivals with development of pharmacotherapy recently, surgery is the first choice if curative resection is expected to be achieved. However, most of the patients undergo recurrence after resection of the liver metastasis even after curative resection. Therefore, it is important to identify who gains longer RFS by resection.

#3037 Effects of Debulking Surgery, Transarterial Embolisation (TAE) and Transarterial Chemoembolisation (TACE) on Quality of Life in Patients with Metastatic Ileal and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETs)
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.

#2891 Bone Metastases and Skeletal Related Events in Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NEN): The Role of Zoledronic Acid
Introduction: The incidence of bone metastases (BM) in patients with NENs is 12-25%, and skeletal related events (SREs) occur in up to 21% of affected cases. Data about the efficacy of bisphosphonates in NEN patients (pts) with BM are limited.

#3052 Unique Metastatic Patterns in Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of Different Primary Origin
Introduction: Neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) can originate in different organs, e.g. in the gastro-enteric tract (GE), pancreas (P) or lung (L). Despite similarities in clinical and pathological characteristics in tumors of another origin, differences also exist. This might apply to metastatic patterns as well, but only limited data is available so far.
