Resection of the Primary Tumor Improves Survival in Patients with Gastro-Entero-Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Neoplasms with Liver Metastases

GEP‐NEN patients with liver metastases (LM) were selected from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database between 2010 and 2015.

The findings from this research may provide meaningful insights for surgeons to identify high‐risk patients.
