Radical excision of Barrett's esophagus and complete recovery of normal squamous epithelium

Radical excision of Barrett's esophagus and complete recovery of normal squamous epithelium

World Journal of Gastroenterology 19(31): 5195-5198

To treat Barrett's esophagus (BE), radiofrequency ablation or cryotherapy are effective treatments for eradicating BE with dysplasia and intestinal metaplasia, and reduce the rates of Barrett's esophageal adenocarcinoma (BAC). However, patients with BE and dysplasia or early cancer who achieved complete eradication of intestinal metaplasia, BE recurred in 5% within a year, requiring expensive endoscopic surveillances. We performed endoscopic submucosal dissection as complete radically curable treatment procedure for BE with dysplasia, intestinal metaplasia and BAC.
