Table 1

Clinicopathological variables stratified by microvessel counts

This table demonstrates the association between the microvessel counts and the clinicopathological variables: age, stage, grade, and survival. There were no significant associations between microvessel counts and stage, age, or grade based on Fisher’s Exact test. The median survival for patients with a microvessel count above 10 was 2.7 years, whereas for those with a count ≤10, it was 7.9 years.
