Table 4 Lymphatic and blood vessel invasion detected on H&E and immunostained sections of 123 invasive mammary carcinomas

From: Lymph vascular invasion in invasive mammary carcinomas identified by the endothelial lymphatic marker D2-40 is associated with other indicators of poor prognosis

H&E Immunohistochemistry

  1. LVI = lymphatic vessel invasion; BVI = blood vessel invasion; H&E = hematoxylin and eosin; n = number of cases
  2. Kappa value for LVI= 0.433 (95% confidence interval: 0.229 to 0.636)
  3. Kappa value for BVI= 0.198 (95% confidence interval: -0.144 to 0.541)
