Microvascular invasion (MVI), an omen of potential hematogenous spread of tumor cells, has been identified as an accepted risk factor for poor prognosis in some solid tumors. But its prognostic value in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remains disputable. In order to address this question rigorously, we performed a systematical review of the published literature on MVI and RCC prognosis. According to the PRISMA statement, we searched PubMed, Web of science, and Cochrane Library database and… CONTINUE READING
