Poor prognostic value of lymphovascular invasion for pT1 urothelial carcinoma with squamous differentiation in bladder cancer.


ABSTRACT: Lymphovascular invasion (LVI) is the primary and essential step in the systemic dissemination of cancer cells. The aim of our study was to assess the independent prognostic role of LVI for pT1 urothelial carcinoma with squamous differentiation in bladder cancer. We retrospectively analyzed the clinical and pathological information of 206 patients diagnosed pT1 urothelial carcinoma with squamous differentiation. Of the 206 patients, LVI was detected in 57 (27.6%) patients. The 5 year cancer specific survival (CSS) rates were 87.2% in LVI (-) and 52.4% in LVI (+) (p < 0.001). According to univariate analysis, tumor multiplicity, tumor size, recurrence and LVI were the prognostic factors associated with CSS. Additionally, tumor size and LVI significantly influenced the CSS in multivariate analysis. TURBT had shorter median CSS than RC in recurred patients with LVI (+). Our study suggested that LVI is an important predictor for survival of pT1 urothelial carcinoma with squamous differentiation. LVI positive status and tumor size ≥3 cm led to a higher risk of death. RC should be routinely performed in recurred LVI (+) bladder cancer patients of pT1 urothelial carcinoma with squamous differentiation.
