    Background: Although there is an established agreement on the advantage of liver resection for metastatic colorectal and neuroendocrine tumours, the role of hepatic surgery in patients with liver metastases from non-colorectal and non-neuroendocrine carcinoma is not well defined. In recent...

    Many neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) have a tendency to metastasize to the liver. In case of limited number of metastases, liver surgery or radiofrequency ablation (RFA) may result in apparently total clearance of metastases. However, it is not clear whether such therapy will provide symptom...

    Abstract: Gastrinoma is a rare endocrine tumor that is frequently associated with liver metastasis. The liver metastasis is usually seen simultaneously or soon after a primary operation. A 47-year-old woman who had had a total gastrectomy 20 years earlier developed liver metastasis. An interval...

    Introduction: Carcinoid is a slowly-growing tumor from the group of neuroendocrine or APUD tumors. Characteristic of these tumors is the production of biogene amins & polypeptide hormones. 90% of all carcinoids are located in the GI system. Case report: A female patient, 68 years old, comes for...

    Recent publications indicate that life may be prolonged by surgical debulking of neuroendocrine tumors. A minimum 90% reduction of liver metastases has been suggested to alleviate symptoms of the carcinoid. We have used the tumor marker chromogranin A (CgA) to assess hepatic resection in...
