BACKGROUND Gross vascular invasion is a well-established prognostic indicator in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the biological significance of microscopic invasion remains unclear. METHODS Curatively resected primary HCCs were classified retrospectively into 3 groups: HCCs without vascular invasion (V0), HCCs with microvascular invasion (V1), and… CONTINUE READING
