Background: Hepatic arterial embolisation (HAE) is a recommended treatment option for patients with neuro-endocrine neoplasms (NENs) and liver metastasis. We aimed to describe outcomes after HAE for NENs at a single United Kingdom centre and investigate the influence of tumour characteristics.Methods: Retrospective analysis of sequential patients with NENs undergoing HAE at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust between 2004 and 2018. Primary end points were ...

Introduction: Platinum-etoposide is considered standard-of-care first-line treatment for patients diagnosed with advanced EP-PD-NECs. The optimal platinum-etoposide schedule remains undefined; carboplatin is often substituted for cisplatin, although quality data is lacking.Methods: Electronic records of patients with advanced EP-PD-NEC treated with carboplatin-etoposide (06/09-02/17) were reviewed retrospectively, with aim to provide real-life efficacy/s...

Background: Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (panNETs) may arise as part of an underlying genetic condition such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN type 1). The value of functional imaging using 68Ga-labelled synthetic octreotide analogues using PET-CT has not been extensively evaluated in patients with MEN1 to determine its value.Methods: We investigated the effect of 68Ga-based PET-CT imaging on patient management in pat...
