Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) plays an important role in the tumor angiogenesis, and its expression has been supposed to be a biomarker of prognosis in patients with osteosarcoma. There are many studies assessing the prognostic role of VEGF expression in osteosarcoma, and no consistent outcomes are reported. To provide a comprehensive assessment of the prognostic role of VEGF expression, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of published studies. We assessed the effect… CONTINUE READING
