In patients with lymph node-negative breast cancer, lymphovascular invasion (LVI) can be used as a high-risk criterion to indicate a survival disadvantage equivalent to that indicated by a positive pathologic lymph node status of pN0 or pN1 and a pathologic tumor classification of pT1 or pT2. The use of immunohistochemistry to identify an endothelial-specific marker can contribute to the significance of LVI when applied to routine cases that are LVI negative/possible.
