Answer

NCCN recommendations are as follows [7] :

  • Surgical resection with lymphadenectomy

  • Careful examination of the entire bowel and assessment of proximity to or involvement of the superior mesenteric artery and superior mesenteric vein

  • Prophylactic cholecystectomy if further treatment with octreotide or lanreotide is planned
