Fig. 5. Kaplan–Meier curve of DSS (disease specific survival) according to nearest margin 0.35 cm, worst pattern of invasion (WPOI), tumor budding. For disease-specific survival, the group with the nearest margin greater than 0.35 cm in the survival curve showed higher survival, but it was not statistically significant (P=0.276). And the non-aggressive WPOI group showed a 100% survival rate and showed a statistically significant difference compared with the aggressive WPOI group (P=0.03). Also, the group with low-tumor budding in the survival curve showed higher survival, but it was not statistically significant (P=0.271). Non-aggressive WPOI (WPOI types 1, 2, 3), aggressive WPOI (WPOI types 4, 5). Low tumor budding (less than 5 buds), high-tumor budding (≥5 buds). Buds defined as a single cancer cell or a cluster of less than 5 cancer cells in the stroma of the invasive front.
