Rare Disease Day Special 2017: Understanding Neuroendocrine Tumors
 
07:12
If you are struggling to get a diagnosis for chronic symptoms like diarrhea, flushing, abdominal pain, fatigue or wheezing, you may want to get tested for Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs). Symptoms vary widely between NET patients and may be confused with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, rosacea, ulcers, Crohn’s disease, allergies or pneumonia. Blood work and urine tests are available, as well as CT, PET and other imaging techniques that can locate and identify NET lesions. New products, such as gallium Ga 68 dotatate for PET imaging have recently been approved by the FDA, and other innovations are on the way. There is a huge gap between the number of patients diagnosed with NETs and the number of people who are living with NETs, but are unaware that they have the disease.

The Morphologic Assessment of Rectal Neuroendocrine Tumors
 
09:25
Abstract: The histopathologic features of rectal neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), including size, lymphovascular invasion, invasion of proper muscle, and mitotic rate, have a limited role to play in determining a treatment plan preoperatively. We aimed to investigate the morphologic parameters associated with metastasis, and to evaluate their predictive value. Methods Between January 2000 and May 2011, the medical records and endoscopic findings of 468 patients presenting with rectal NETs at the Samsung Medical Center were analyzed retrospectively. All tumors were classified according to size and endoscopic features such as color, shape, contour, and surface change. Results Twenty-one of the 468 patients (4.5%) with rectal NETs had lymph node (LN) metastasis and 11 patients (2.4%) had distant metastasis. Risk factors for metastasis included tumor size (≥10 mm in diameter), hyperemic change, polypoid lesions, irregular contours, and surface ulceration (p=0.000). Independent risk factors that were predictive of metastasis on multivariate analysis included tumor size (≥10 mm in diameter), hyperemic change, and surface ulceration. As the number of independent risk factors for metastasis increased, the risk of metastasis rose. Conclusions Endoscopic features such as hyperemic change, polypoid lesions, irregular contours, and surface ulcers with tumor size ≥10 mm in diameter are associated with metastasis in rectal NETs. In particular, atypical endoscopic features including hyperemic change, and surface ulcer with tumor size ≥10 mm in diameter may help to predict the risk of metastasis of rectal NETs.

Neuroendocrine Tumor Clinic - The Nebraska Medical Center
 
05:06
Neuroendocrine tumors are rare and can be difficult to diagnose. Getting proper treatment for patients with these types of tumors can be even more challenging. The Nebraska Medical Center offers a Neuroendocrine Tumor Clinic to treat these difficult cases -- one of a few in the country. Luciano Vargas, MD, an abdominal transplant surgeon that specializes in the surgical management of neuroendocrine tumors at The Nebraska Medical Center, says the clinic sees patients from across the country for evaluation and treatment. "We have several types of surgical techniques that we use to remove the tumor: primary surgical resection, staged hepatectomy resection or liver transplantation." Dr. Vargas joined the staff at The Nebraska Medical Center in July. He attended medical school at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio; completed two years of general surgery residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) in Omaha; followed by two years of research in intestinal transplantation and a fellowship in liver transplantation. He is also an assistant professor of Surgery at UNMC. The Neuroendocrine Tumor Clinic meets twice monthly and has a growing patient base. Dr. Vargas works in collaboration with a neuroendocrine oncologist, Dr. Jean Grem, MD, and a dedicated nurse, Lucie Case. Patients with carcinoid tumors typically present in the fifth and sixth decade of life and have various presentations, notes Dr. Vargas. Some are asymptomatic while others experience vague symptoms such as abdominal pain and bloating. If individuals have excess hormone production, they can experience diarrhea, flushing spells, heart palpitations and wheezing. A physical examination may show heart valve lesions and signs of niacin-deficiency. "To confirm the presence of a carcinoid cancer will ultimately require a tissue diagnosis," says Dr. Vargas. "Additional studies that are used to follow individuals with carcinoid cancer include 5-HIAA levels in the urine, CT and MRI scans, chromogranin A and an octreotide radiolabelled scan." Surgery to remove the tumor is the first line of treatment. The staged hepatectomy procedure involves removing a portion of the tumor from the liver. A port vein embolism to block the blood supply to the affected part of the liver is then performed to stimulate growth to the unaffected portion. If the carcinoid tumor is unresectable and localized to the liver, the patient may be a possible liver transplant candidate. Liver transplant patients can expect one-, three- and five-year survival rates of 81 percent, 65 percent and 49 percent respectively. The liver transplant program at The Nebraska Medical Center was formed in 1985. With more than 2,500 liver transplants and more than 500 pediatric liver transplants under its belt, it is now one of the most active and advanced centers in the world. If the entire tumor is resected, the patient will continue to be monitored for the rest of his or her life. "These types of tumors tend to recur so we like to see them twice a year with repeat imaging to confirm tumor remission," says Dr. Vargas. He says his clinic works closely with the primary care doctor to follow up with these patients. "We believe that a good communicative relationship is vital to patient outcomes," says Dr. Vargas. "Often our patients are not local or our interaction with them comes down to once or twice a year. So we rely on the primary care physician to be the first responders to any changes in the condition of our neuroendocrine patients. To foster this relationship, we make ourselves easily available by email and phone." For more information, visit www.NebraskaMed.com or call 1-800-922-0000.

What are the most common symptoms of neuroendocrine tumours (NETs)?
 
01:57
This video is intended for an international audience, excluding the United States, Canada and France. Dr Rachel Riechelmann talks about the symptoms of neuroendocrine tumours (NETs). In the video she describes how symptoms of NETs depend on several factors, such as where the tumours are located and if they produce hormones or not. The physical presence of NETs in the body may cause nonspecific symptoms of NETs such as pain, nausea and sometimes weight loss. If NETs produce hormones then symptoms will be related to the hormone that they produce. This could include low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia) if NETs are producing insulin or facial flushing and other carcinoid syndrome symptoms if serotonin is produced. Visit http://www.livingwithnets.com to learn more and find answers to questions such as: “What causes NETs?” and “How are NETs diagnosed?” “How are NETs treated?” and "What are carcinoid tumours and carcinoid syndrome?" Living with Nets provides information and support for people living with NETs. Dr Riechelmann is a medical oncologist working at Hospital Sírio-Libanês and Hospital em São Paulo in São Paulo, Brazil.

Octreotide And Carcinoid Cancer
 
12:57
This is not a normal cancer. Carcinoid tumors are rare, with only 27 new cases per million diagnosed in the U.S. per year. Standard treatment is surgery to remove the entire tumor. Octreotide is not a cancer treatment. It is used as a growth inhibitor and may help with symptoms of Carcinoid syndrome. Carcinoid syndrome occurs in very few people with carcinoid tumors, after the tumor has spread to the liver or lung. These tumors release too much of the hormone serotonin, as well as several other chemicals. The hormones cause the blood vessels to open (dilate). This causes carcinoid syndrome.
