The most effective method of localizing insulinomas is still a matter of controversy as both preoperative and intraoperative approaches have been advocated. Although results were not statistically significant and sample sizes were small, the guideline development group believed the signal that active treatment may actually worsen outcomes was sufficient to recommend against vasopressin receptor antagonists in this specific category. Mesoappendix dissection: On systematic review of data in this specific patient category, there appeared to be an increased number of deaths in those patients treated with vasopressin receptor antagonists in comparison with those treated with placebo. Therefore, it was accepted that the risk—benefit balance for the different biochemical degrees of chronic hyponatraemia, and of the underlying diagnosis, would be evaluated separately. Additionally a manual literature search was performed by each of the members of the working groups involved in the analysis of the above-mentioned eight questions. A recent systematic review, which included three clinical practice guidelines and five consensus statements, confirmed the lack of high-quality guidelines in this field 1.
Next, a Kocher maneuver is performed to mobilize the duodenum and the head of the pancreas. This allows bimanual palpation of the head of the pancreas. At this point, using IOUS to determine the location of the tumor s and their relationship to the pancreatic duct and vessels is critical. Tumors should be removed intact to prevent local recurrence.

The yellow lines are showing the insulinoma. Figure 7 Enucleation of insulinoma seen in Figures 4 , 5 , and 6. Figure 8 Final specimen of insulinoma as shown in Figure 4 , 5 , 6 , and 7. As the application of minimally invasive surgery advances in all fields of surgery, its utility in insulinoma management has also emerged.
Successful laparoscopic surgery for insulinoma has been reported since Surgical complications include pancreatic fistula, pseudocyst, intra-abdominal abscess, pancreatitis, hemorrhage, and diabetes. Insulinoma patients who are awaiting surgery or who are not surgical candidates can be managed with medical therapy and dietary modification to avoid prolonged fasting.
The initial drug of choice for patients with insulinoma is diazoxide, a nondiuretic benzothiadiazine derivative. Diazoxide was primarily introduced in the s for the treatment of hypertension; however, its side effects of hyperglycemia has made the drug applicable for the management of insulinoma.
Somatostatin analogs octreotide and lanreotide have also provided another class of agents that are useful in the symptomatic management of insulinoma in patients with receptors for the drug. Natural somatostatin has a very short half-life of 2 minutes.
Recent studies have also focused on the antiproliferative and growth stabilization of somatostatin analogs on malignant NETs. With regards to malignant insulinoma, establishing the presence of SSTR2 receptors in the primary tumor and in metastases may be valuable in avoiding severe hypoglycemia in patients without this receptor. Other agents that have been used for the medical treatment of insulinoma with various degrees of outcomes include phenytoin, verapamil, propranolol, glucocorticoids, and lastly glucagon.
Medical interventions, namely diazoxide, hepatic embolization, chemotherapy streptozocin, doxorubicin, and 5-flurouracil , peptide-receptor radionuclide therapy, and radiofrequency ablation, have been mainly used for disease palliation. The chemotherapeutic agents everolimus and sunitinib have been recently approved for the management of advanced insulinoma, with promising progression-free survival and overall survival.
The most frequent side effects of sunitinib observed were diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, asthenia, and fatigue. Insulinoma is a very rare neuroendocrine tumor that has a unique presentation at the time of diagnosis. Patients with insulinoma develop symptoms such as confusion, dizziness, and palpitations that are relieved by consuming carbohydrate.
Although it is predominantly a benign tumor, many biochemical tests and imaging modalities have been applied to properly diagnose and localize insulinomas. The hour test can be used to accurately diagnose insulinoma in the majority of insulinoma patients, with very few having to complete the full hour test. Preoperative CT scan is helpful in ruling out metastasis. Following the diagnosis of insulinoma, the definitive treatment of the tumor is surgery.
IOUS, in conjunction with palpation, can correctly locate insulinoma. In the cases of missing insulinomas, SACS is a helpful tool to identify the anatomic region of the lesion in the pancreas. The medical management of insulinoma patients who are not surgical candidates or with malignant insulinomas has also seen many advances. In addition to the many available agents for symptomatic control of the disease, newly approved agents, such as sunitinib and everolimus, have had encouraging results in progression-free survival.
