Figure 8-3 Kaplan-Meier (mets) survival curve for patients with gastrinoma in the presence or absence of liver metastasis (mets). Data are derived from follow-up of a cohort of patients who were evaluated and treated at the National Institutes of Health.


Figure 8-4 Effect of parathyroidectomy on the fasting serum levels of gastrin in two patients with MEN-1. In each case, resection of parathyroid pathology significantly reduced serum gastrin levels regardless of the timing of islet cell tumor resection.
