Kazuya Takahashi et al. Management decision based on lymphovascular involvement leads to favorable outcomes after endoscopic treatment of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma

Retrospective study of endoscopic submucosal dissection outcomes in 102 patients with esophageal squamous cell cancer with invasion into the muscularis mucosae or submucosa (up to 200 µm). It was found that lymphovascular invasion rather than tumor invasion depth was the main predictor for metastasis.
