The present study proposes a classification of renal cancer tumor blood vessels according to their morphology and maturation grade. We identified four vascular patterns: reticular, diffuse, fasciculated and trabecular. The reticular pattern was present in 63% of cases, being characterized by the predominance of mature CD34+/SMAct+ tumor vessels, highly interconnected. For this pattern, 74% of cases had vascular invasion, and a significant correlation was observed between tumor grade and… CONTINUE READING
