Although vascular invasion (VI) is recognized as an important predictor of lymph node metastasis and a significant prognostic factor in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), there is currently no common definition for the pathological evaluation of VI status. We reviewed the medical records of 63 consecutive resected primary oral tongue SCCs (OTSCCs) without preoperative treatment between June 1999 and April 2008, and evaluated VI status by investigating lymphatic vessel invasion (LVI… CONTINUE READING
