Twenty-year experience in diagnosis and treatment of insulinoma in Burdenko Surgery Clinic, Moscow Medical Academy, Russia Abstract #49

Introduction: For the last 20 years, 235 patients with the diagnosis of organic hyperinsulinismus were treated in Burdenko Surgery Clinic.
Aim(s): To improve diagnostic approach and management of patients with insulinomas.
Materials and methods: For the last 20 years, 235 patients with the diagnosis of organic hyperinsulinismus were treated in Burdenko Surgery Clinic, and 223 of them were operated on. The incidence of malignant insulinomas was 14% (33 patients) and 12 patients already had hepatic metastases at the time of diagnosis. In 14 cases (6%), nesidioblastosis without any solid pancreatic lesions was diagnosed. MEN-1 syndrome occurred in 13% (30 patients) among patient with insulinomas, however this rate quickly increased due to MEN screening in our clinic. During the last three years, it increased to 40% (14 patients). For patients with insulinoma, we used the following procedures: fasting test, transabdominal US (sensitivity 64%), endoscopic US (sensitivity 87%), CT (sensitivity 68%), arterial stimulated blood sampling test (sensitivity 95%), intraoperative US (sensitivity of 98%). We performed the following operations: enucleation of insulinoma - 127; distal pancreatic resection - 82; distal subtotal resection of pancreas - 4; gastropancreatoduodenal resection - 2. Diagnostic laparotomy was made in nine cases.

#50 Clinical-morphology correlation in diagnostics and evaluating surgery results of pancreatic insulinoma and nesidiobastosis
Introduction: Organic hyperinsulinism syndrome (OHS) is revealed in 85% cases of pancreas insulinoma. Nesidioblastosis (NB) induces OHS in 15% of the cases. Surgical cure provides all symptoms of insulinoma disappearing, while cytoreductive operation results in considerable improvement of life quality. There is no intraoperative opportunity to reveal insulinoma grade, even if an urgent biopsy is performed. Thus, it is essential to determine the cause of OHS and to apply the surgical cure method during the preoperational period, thereby improving the long-term prognosis.

Introduction: Pancreatic islet cell tumors occur in 80% of patients with MEN 1. Tumors are often multicentric. They often produce multiple peptides and biogenic amines.

#83 Surgical treatment of duodenopancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1): a Dutch consensus statement
Introduction: Duodenopancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs) in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) are the most important cause of MEN 1-related death. Surgery is the only curative treatment, but controversy exists on the optimal strategy. Recent guidelines on pNETs have limited recommendations specific for MEN 1. Therefore, a Dutch multidisciplinary consensus meeting was organized.

#91 Endoscopic ultrasound of 66 insulinomas
Introduction: Ultrasound is the virtual representation of the morphology of organs and tissues. Endoscopic ultrasound can be used in detailed scanning of pancreas and preoperative topical diagnostics of insulinomas. Insulinoma requires surgical treatment in all cases. This fact allows control of preoperative diagnostic methods.
