Background: Recent studies suggest that angiogenesis enhances tumor growth and metastasis. Lymph node metastasis influences the prognosis and selection of treatment modalities in cancers. In this study, the authors investigated the correlation between angiogenesis and clinicopathologic features to determine whether angiogenesis correlated with lymph node metastasis in early-stage gastric cancer. Methods: A total of 97 specimens from patients with early gastric cancer were studied by… CONTINUE READING
