AIMS The relative impact of different prognostic factors is important for endometrial carcinoma patients. The aim of our study was to examine the combined value of histological grade [International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (FIGO)] and vascular invasion in comparison with tumour cell proliferation assessed by mitotic count and Ki67. The recently proposed binary architectural grade was also evaluated, in addition to age, depth of myometrial infiltration and FIGO stage in our… CONTINUE READING
