OBJECTIVES Microvascular invasion and microlymphatic permeation are indicators of microscopic tumour invasion into small vessels and have been considered to be powerful prognostic indicators for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Several studies have suggested that these should be included in the TNM classification, but, there have been conflicting results regarding the prognostic impact of microvascular invasion and microlymphatic permeation. The aim of the current study was to clarify the… CONTINUE READING
