Multivariate analysis in the group of patients having >10% of neoplastic cell expression, meaning positive for vimentin, showed that this group of patients had a shorter postsurgical survival rate (p = 0.035) independent of any other confounding factor, making the expression of vimentin an independent prognostic factor in this study (Figure 4).
