Synopsis: The incidence and severity of complications after major duodenopancreatic surgery (i.e., Whipple procedure or total pancreatectomy) for duodenopancreatic neuroendocrine tumors in patients with MEN1 were investigated in a population-based cohort. Major duodenopancreatic surgery in patients with MEN1 is associated with a very high risk of severe complications and cumulative burden of morbidity and should therefore be reserved for a selected subgroup of patients with MEN1-related dpNETs.
