OBJECTIVES Vascular invasion (VI) has been accepted as a universally important prognostic factor for patients with lung carcinoma. However, the clinical significance of VI in each of the histological subtypes has been unclear. The aim of the present study was to investigate differences in the clinicopathological implications of VI between adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. METHOD A total of 336 patients were evaluated, of whom 81 were diagnosed as having peripheral-type squamous cell… CONTINUE READING
