1 Review Management of neuroendocrine carcinomas of the pancreas (WHO G3): A tailored approach between proliferation and morphology. 2016

ABSTRACT: Neuroendocrine carcinomas (NEC) of the pancreas are defined by a mitotic count > 20 mitoses/10 high power fields and/or Ki67 index > 20%, and included all the tumors previously classified as poorly differentiated endocrine carcinomas. These latter are aggressive malignancies with a high propensity for distant metastases and poor prognosis, and they can be further divided into small- and large-cell subtypes. However in the NEC category are included also neuroendocrine tumors with a well differentiated morphology but ki67 index > 20%. This category is associated with better prognosis and does not significantly respond to cisplatin-based chemotherapy, which represents the gold standard therapeutic approach for poorly differentiated NEC. In this review, the differences between well differentiated and poorly differentiated NEC are discussed considering both pathology, imaging features, treatment and prognostic implications. Diagnostic and therapeutic flowcharts are proposed. The need for a revision of current classification system is stressed being well differentiated NEC a more indolent disease compared to poorly differentiated tumors.

ABSTRACT: During the last decades an increase in the incidence of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) was observed. Gastroenteropancreatic NETs represent the majority of NETs. Compared with their epithelial counterpart they usually have a more indolent behaviour and surgical resection improves survival. Tumor diameter is one of the main parameter in the decision making process for nonfunctioning forms. Generally, small lesions can be treated conservatively whereas larger tumors should be treated with standard surgical resection and lymphadenectomy. Functioning tumors should be resected regardless the dimension of the lesion. Locally advanced and metastatic disease should be also treated with extended resections, keeping in consideration the grading, size, Ki67, and presence of extra-abdominal disease. In the case of metastases the panel of operative treatment includes resection, ablation, up to liver transplantation.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Distal pancreatectomy (DP) is a surgical procedure performed to remove the pancreatic tail jointly with a variable part of the pancreatic body and including a spleen resection in the case of conventional distal pancreatectomy or not in the spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy. METHODS: In this article, we describe a standardized operative technique for fully robotic distal pancreatectomy. RESULTS: In the last decade, the use of robotic systems has become increasingly common as an approach for benign and malignant pancreatic disease treatment. Robotic Distal Pancreatectomy (RDP) is an emerging technology for which sufficient data to draw definitive conclusions in surgical oncology are still not available because the follow-up period after surgery is too short (less than 2 years). CONCLUSIONS: RDP is an emerging technology for which sufficient data to draw definitive conclusions of value in surgical oncology are still not available, however this techniques is safe and reproducible by surgeons that possess adequate skills.
