The carcinoid syndrome (CS) and hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia (HH) represent two of the most common clinical syndromes associated with neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs). The former is mainly related to the serotonin secretion by a small bowel NEN, whereas the latter depends on an insulin hypersecretion by a pancreatic insulinoma. Both syndromes/conditions can affect prognosis and quality of life of patients with NENs. They are often diagnosed late when patients become strongly symptomatic. Therefo...

Background Liver metastases from neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) is an accepted indication for liver transplantation (LT). Despite strict patient selection, post-LT recurrence is observed in 30-50% of cases. Postrecurrence survival is poorly investigated as well as factors influencing postrecurrence outcomes. Methods Consecutive patients treated at a single Institution for post-LT recurrence of NET between Jan 1st, 2004 and Dec 31th, 2018 were included. Baseline patients' characteristics, data on t...

Abstract Background Bile leaks occurring after complex liver resection and lasting >1 week (grade B) usually are managed by means of invasive cholangiography either endoscopic or percutaneous, with a substantial risk of procedure-related complications. The aim of this study was to investigate the ability of gadoxetic acid disodium–enhanced magnetic resonance cholangiography to detect postoperative biliary leaks and avoid invasive cholangiography in case of peripheral location of the fistula. Met...

Purpose Pretreatment staging is the milestone for planning either surgical or endoscopic treatment in duodenal neuroendocrine neoplasms (dNENs). Herein, a series of surgically treated dNEN patients was evaluated to assess the concordance between the pre- and postsurgical staging. Methods Retrospective analysis of patients with a histologically confirmed diagnosis of dNENs, who underwent surgical resection observed at eight Italian tertiary referral centers. The presurgical TNM stage, based on th...

Abstract Background Patients with sporadic neuroendocrine neoplasms may exhibit a higher risk of a second primary tumor than the general population. Aim This study aimed to analyze the occurrence of second primary malignancies. Methods A retrospective cohort of 2757 patients with sporadic lung and gastro-entero-pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms, managed at eight Italian tertiary referral Centers, was included. Results Between 2000 and 2019, a second primary malignancy was observed in 271 (9.8%...

BACKGROUND One of the most widely used risk stratification systems for estimating individual patients' risk of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) persistence or recurrence is proposed by the American Thyroid Association (ATA) guidelines. The 2015 revision, that has increased the number of patients considered at low or intermediate risk, has been validated in several retrospective, single referral-center studies. The aims of this study were to evaluate the real-world performance of the 2015 ATA ...

Background and aim Small-bowel neuroendocrine neoplasm (sbNEN) diagnosis has improved with double-balloon enteroscopy (DBE). DBE efficacy in the detection of sbNENs is unknown. We aimed to report the experience at a single referral center for NENs. Methods All consecutive patients with a suspected sbNEN selected for diagnostic DBE were enrolled. Results Between 2011 and 2016, 25 patients were referred for a suspected sbNEN. In 15/25 patients, a primary NEN was detected outside the small bowel; i...

Introduction: The optimal treatment for small, asymptomatic, nonfunctioning pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (NF-PanNEN) is still controversial. European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) guidelines recommend a watchful strategy for asymptomatic NF-PanNEN less than 2 cm of diameter. Several retrospective series demonstrated that a non-operative management is safe and feasible, but no prospective studies are available. Aim of the ASPEN study is to evaluate the optimal management of asymptom...

Neuroendocrine neoplasms of the lung represent about 20% to 30% of all neuroendocrine tumors. On the basis of clinical and pathologic characteristics, 2 different categories of tumors may be defined: poorly differentiated neuroendocrine neoplasms, characterized by a high rate of recurrences and poor prognosis, and well-differentiated neuroendocrine neoplasms (typical carcinoids and atypical carcinoids), which generally display an indolent course. Lung carcinoids represent only 1% to 5% of all lu...
