MINI: The reported prevalence of new-onset or worsening gastroesophageal reflux disease after sleeve gastrectomy is controversial. Subsequent esophagitis and Barrett's esophagus can be serious uninten...
Biopsy samples from esophageal columnar metaplasia and dysplasia are commonly encountered in Western pathology practice and knowing a few pitfalls can save both pathologists and patients a great deal ...
To review recently published data on factors that predict the risk of progression of Barrett's esophagus (BE) to high grade dysplasia (HGD) or esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC).
Sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has become one of the most dramatically increasing bariatric procedures worldwide due to its excellent results and impact on the obesity pandemic. Morbid obesity is known to in...
Barrett's esophagus (BE)-intestinal metaplasia in the esophagus-may progress to low-grade dysplasia (LGD), high-grade dysplasia (HGD), and ultimately, invasive esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC). The cou...
Patients with Barrett's Esophagus are known to have excessive distal esophageal acid exposure comparable to patients with erosive esophagitis. A significant proportion of patients with BE ...
By using combination of the expression of COX-2 and NOS and immunologic reaction in the esophagus with manometry of LES and cruel diaphragm and 24 hr esophageal pH monitoring to investigat...
This is a multi-center study whose aim is to define the epidemiology and genetics of Barrett's esophagus and adenocarcinoma. The researchers have studied families affected with Barrett's e...
The purpose of this study is to determine if there are any early changes in DNA markers of blood and esophageal tissue in people with gastric reflux, Barrett's esophagus or esophageal canc...
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a mainstay of treatment for patients who have Barrett's esophagus (BE) with dysplasia. For unclear reasons, Barrett's esophagus recurs after successful RFA...
A condition with damage to the lining of the lower ESOPHAGUS resulting from chronic acid reflux (ESOPHAGITIS, REFLUX). Through the process of metaplasia, the squamous cells are replaced by a columnar epithelium with cells resembling those of the INTESTINE or the salmon-pink mucosa of the STOMACH. Barrett's columnar epithelium is a marker for severe reflux and precursor to ADENOCARCINOMA of the esophagus.
A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.
Chronic ESOPHAGITIS characterized by esophageal mucosal EOSINOPHILIA. It is diagnosed when an increase in EOSINOPHILS are present over the entire esophagus. The reflux symptoms fail to respond to PROTON PUMP INHIBITORS treatment, unlike in GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASE. The symptoms are associated with IgE-mediated hypersensitivity to food or inhalant allergens.
A motility disorder of the ESOPHAGUS in which the LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER (near the CARDIA) fails to relax resulting in functional obstruction of the esophagus, and DYSPHAGIA. Achalasia is characterized by a grossly contorted and dilated esophagus (megaesophagus).
Disorders affecting the motor function of the UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; the ESOPHAGUS body, or a combination of these parts. The failure of the sphincters to maintain a tonic pressure may result in gastric reflux of food and acid into the esophagus (GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX). Other disorders include hypermotility (spastic disorders) and markedly increased amplitude in contraction (nutcracker esophagus).
