Endokrynologia Polska 6/2013-Dear Colleagues and Readers,

LIST DO CZYTELNIKÓW/LETTER TO READERS

Dear Colleagues and Readers,

In this issue of “Endokrynologia Polska” we bring you the “Management guidelines for gastrointestinal neuroendocrine neoplasm (recommended by the Polish Network of Neuroendocrine Tumours)”.

These recommendations have been developed by the group of Polish and foreign experts participating in the 2nd Round Table Conference entitled “The diagnosis and treatment of gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms: Polish versus European recommendations” which took place between the 19th and 20th of April 2013 in Kamień Śląski, Poland.

Its aim was to update the management recommendations for patients with gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms (GEP NENs) published by the Polish Neuroendocrine Tumour Network in 2008. Two years later the monograph entitled “Neuroendocrine tumours” was published, which contained updated recommendations. Given the rapid progress in the new diagnostic methods and the treatment of GEP NENs, the groups of experts decided to review the recommendations and include the latest achievements of medicine that would also be effectively implemented in Poland. Papers on the following topics have therefore been written:

— general recommendations on the management of GEP NENs and papers on the management of specific neuroendocrine neoplasms:

  • NENs of the stomach and duodenum (including gastrinoma),
  • NENs of the pancreas,
  • NENs of the small intestine,
  • colorectal NENs.

We hope that the recommendations jointly drawn up by specialists in the leading areas of medicine dealing with GEP NENs patients (endocrinology, gastroenterology, surgery, oncology, nuclear medicine, pathology and radiology) will make your everyday clinical work easier and that we will all be able to better address the challenges associated with the treatment of these patients.

 

On behalf of the Editors
