OBJECTIVE Several studies have shown that lympho vascular space involvement (LVSI) and lymph node micrometastases (LNmM) may be risk factors for recurrence in early-stage cervical cancer with no apparent lymph node metastases. We performed a retrospective case-control study to reassess whether the presence of lymph node micrometastases and LVSI is predictive of subsequent recurrence following surgical resection of early-stage cervical cancer.
