Cumulative overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS) curves of patients with or without microvessel invasion (MVI). MVI was associated with shorter OS and shorter RFS in all the patients without BCLC stratification (a and b, P < 0.001 for both) and in patients at BCLC stage A (e and f, P < 0.001 for both). In patients at BCLC stage 0, MVI was associated with OS but not RFS (c and d, P = 0.028 and P = 0.894); and in patients at BCLC stage B, MVI was associated with RFS but not OS (h and g, P = 0.039 and P = 0.541)
