Appendiceal neuroendocrine tumors recent insights

Paulina Vladova, Sergey Iliev.

Abstract
Background: According to the consensus and the recommendations of the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (ENETS) the frequency of appendicular neuroendocrine tumors is 0,15-0,6/100 000 a year. Their evolution is usually asymptomatic and they are diagnosed accidentally during conventional or laparoscopic appendectomy.
Purpose: The idea of the article is to summarize the knowledge about the neuroendocrine tumors of the appendix and to present the current trends in the treatment and follow-up of patients with that pathology.
Materials and Methods: Literature overview that includes studies about neuroendocrine neoplasms of the appendix(NEN) including the last consensus guideline of ENETS 2017 on the topic.
Conclusion: Despite the lack of any prospective studies concerning appendiceal neuroendocrine tumors, there are some new consensus quidelines, regarding new trends in the optimal management of appendiceal NEN.

Key words: neuroendocrine neoplasms of the appendix, right-sided hemicolectomy, appendicectomy, review
