Ten clinicopathological variables were evaluated as risk factors for pelvic LNM: Age at diagnosis, gravidity, clinical stage, histological grade, tumor diameter, lymph-vascular space involvement (LVSI), depth of cervical stromal invasion, uterine invasion, parametrial invasion, and neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
The following 10 clinicopathological variables were evaluated as risk factors for pelvic LNM: Age at diagnosis, gravidity, clinical stage, histological grade, tumor diameter, lymph-vascular space involvement (LVSI), depth of cervical stromal invasion, uterine invasion, parametrial invasion, and neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT).
Preoperative lymph-vascular space invasion is associated with nodal metastases in women with early-stage cervical cancer.
Histologically, undifferentiated thyroid carcinomas show a variety of patterns, from sheet-like, storiform, fascicular, angiomatoid, and meningothelial to solid, exhibiting extensive lymph-vascular invasion.

A secondary analysis helped the investigators devise a scoring system to identify higher-risk patients in the study, based on four risk factors: age, invasion in the outer third of the myometrium, lymph-vascular space involvement, and grade 3 disease.
There is significant lymph-vascular and perineural invasion (figure 2), which is often associated with positive resection margins.
Lymph-vascular invasion indicates whether microscopic lymph-vascular invasion is identified in the pathology report.
Local recurrence (usually at the surgical margins) can be attributed in many cases to tumor spread longitudinally along the duct wall and to perineural and lymph-vascular invasion.
If the specimen consists predominantly of DCIS with microinvasion, complete submission of the entire specimen, or at a minimum the entire grossly involved area, is recommended to identify additional areas of invasion and/or lymph-vascular invasion.
Invasive carcinoma with extensive lymph-vascular invasion (LVI) (Figure 3, C).
Such tumor deposits may represent discontinuous spread, lymph-vascular spread with extravascular extension, or totally replaced lymph nodes.
