Abstract

Enucleation of functioning neuroendocrine neoplasms (insulinomas, selected gastrinomas) and non-functioning, well-circumscribed neuroendocrine neoplasms <2cm has been shown to be appropriate therapy for these benign neoplasms. Overtly malignant neuroendocrine neoplasms require a formal anatomic pancreatic resection.
