Our purpose is to demonstrate the relationship between microvessel density (MVD), vascular cuffing (VC), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and clinicopathological parameters in ovarian cancer. Surgical specimens from 105 primary ovarian cancers were examined for vascularization and VEGF expression by immunohistochemical staining. The… CONTINUE READING
