International Multicenter Study suggests FTRD could become treatment of choice for dNETs

Retrospective, international multicenter study on FTRD® for duodenal neuroendocrine tumors reveals promising results.

Key findings
• Resection of dNETs with FTRD proved successful with technical success in 163 cases (95.9%) and R0 resection rate of 83.7% in the duodenum (p=0.002)
• Lesions near the pylorus continue to be challenging, with a R0 rate of 62.0%
• Adverse events were at 19.4% (intraprocedural n=10, postprocedural n=24 and late n=1)

Study details
• 170 cases in 35 centers were identified. The median age was 6 5; 59.4% of patients were male
• Median size of the lesion was 10 mm (range 0-25)
• 143 dNETs (84.1%) were in the duodenal bulb, of which 61 (35.9%) were close to the pylorus
• 15 cases of deep infiltration involving the muscularis propria were identified
• Median duration of the procedure was 43 minutes
