Upfront Surgery in Patients with High-Grade GEP NEN and MINEN: A Nordic Multicenter Study of 201 Patients Abstract #2725

Introduction: Surgery is the principal treatment for loco-regional gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) neuroendocrine tumors (NET). However, whether surgery is beneficial in high-grade neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) and mixed neuroendocrine-non neuroendocrine neoplasms (MiNEN) is not known.
Aim(s): To investigate if surgery is beneficial in patients with high-grade (Ki-67>20%) GEP NEN and GEP MiNEN stage I-III or stage IV.
Materials and methods: Retrospective study from 8 Scandinavian centers. Overall survival (OS) and progression free survival (PFS)/disease free survival (DFS) were analyzed by Kaplan-Meier estimate. Prognostic factors were evaluated using COX regression.

Introduction: There are no dedicated guidelines for treatment of urothelial NEC given disease rarity. An aggressive approach, including neoadjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy + nephroureterectomy and adjuvant platinum-based chemotherapy, is recommended.

#2717 64Cu-DOTATATE PET/CT Predicts Progression-Free Survival in Patients with Neuroendocrine Neoplasms
Introduction: The degree of overexpression of somatostatin receptors in patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NEN) may reflect tumor differentiation and thus be associated with prognosis. Non-invasive quantification of receptor density is possible by somatostatin receptor imaging (SRI) using positron emission tomography (PET).
