This consensus statement from the European Neuroendocrine Society is based on extensive bibliographic searches and systematic review.  Surgery is the mainstay of therapy for most tumors, and includes resection of metastases when this can be accomplished in a curative manner.  Somatostatin analogues are considered first line therapy for unresectable carcinoids, whereas systemic chemotherapy is most appropriate for progression of disease.
