Does Microvascular Invasion Affect Outcomes After Liver Transplantation for HCC? A Histopathological Analysis of 155 Consecutive Explants

Abstract

Macroscopic vascular invasion (macroVI) is associated with poor outcomes after liver transplantation (LT) for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Whether microvascular invasion (microVI) is associated with the same adverse prognosis is unclear. One hundred and fifty-five consecutive patients with confirmed HCC after LT from March 1991 to 2004 at our institution… (More)
