However, there are wide discrepancies between institutions in the criteria used. Our objective was to evaluate their consequences on the interpretation of AVS results.Design and methods: All 506 AVS performed from 01/2001 to 03/2009 in our institution were included.

Only one case of multiple insulinomas, with no obvious argument for MEN1 context, has previously been reported (Babic an al., <e...
