BACKGROUND The association of vascular invasion with tumor aggressiveness and poor prognosis in follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC) remains controversial. METHODS We reviewed medical records of 204 patients with histologically confirmed FTC. RESULTS The disease-specific survival rates at 5 and 10 years were 94% and 85%, respectively. Using Cox proportional hazard model, the extent of invasiveness and the frequency of distant metastasis were found to be independent prognostic factors for… CONTINUE READING
