原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Background(#br)Breast cancer is a common malignant neoplasm that is a leading cause of cancer death in women despite recent advances in treatment and research. The role of lymphangiogenesis in breast cancer development remains a source of controversy in current research.(#br)Objective(#br)The relationship between lymphatic microvessel density (LMVD) and the clinicopathological parameters of breast cancer can be effectively examined by meta-analysis of recent studies.(#br)Methods(#br)A total of 10 relevant studies consisting of 1,044 total patients were examined by electronic searches of PubMed and Embase databases. Weighted mean difference (WMD) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were estimated and pooled according to standard methods. LMVD data was pooled by tumor size,...
