OBJECTIVE To examine the clinical utility of improved detection of venous invasion (VI) in patients undergoing potentially curative resection of colorectal cancer. BACKGROUND VI is a feature of colorectal cancer (CRC) progression. Elastica staining can be used to improve detection of VI and correspondingly its prediction of patient survival. METHODS A single-center, observational study of pathology variables, including detection of VI by staining for elastica, using 631 stage I to III CRC… CONTINUE READING
