Barrett's esophagus is the premalignant condition for esophageal cancer and the diagnosis of esophageal adenocarcinoma on index endoscopy is increasing. Many advanced endoscopic techniques are available and aim to identify Barrett's esophagus-associated neoplasia earlier, thereby preventing progression into malignancy.

Name: Current opinion in gastroenterology
Objective - to evaluate the results of treatment of Barrett's esophagus using laparoscopic 270° Toupet fundoplication or radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and their combination.
Barrett esophagus is found in 5% to 15% of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease and is a precursor of esophageal adenocarcinoma, yet the condition often goes undiagnosed. Patients with reflux...
The purpose of this best practice advice article is to describe, in patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) with dysplasia/early cancer, the role of Barrett's endoscopic therapy (BET) and appropriate f...
The presence of intestinal metaplasia in the distal esophagus (Barrett's esophagus) is an important precursor of adenocarcinoma. Knowledge of the risk factors and the process by which the Barrett deve...
Esophageal adenocarcinoma is inflammation-associated cancer with a recognizable preneoplastic stage, Barrett esophagus. Barrett esophagus describes the metaplastic transformation of esophageal squamou...
Researchers are trying to see if the Nvision® Imaging System (VLE) can accurately determine the risk of recurrent Barrett's esophagus in patients with Barrett's esophagus which have been ...
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...
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 ...
This study will evaluate if the capsule sponge device can detect the presence of Barrett's Esophagus
The purpose of this study is to analyze biopsied tissue samples for changes in cells and genes involved in Barrett's Esophagus.
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.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
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).
The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.
A technetium imaging agent used in renal scintigraphy, computed tomography, lung ventilation imaging, gastrointestinal scintigraphy, and many other procedures which employ radionuclide imaging agents.
Barrett’s esophagus is a condition in which the tissue lining the esophagus—the muscular tube that carries food and liquids from the mouth to the stomach—is replaced by tissue that is similar to the intestinal lining. This process is ca...
Standard antiretroviral therapy (ART) consists of the combination of at least three antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to maximally suppress the HIV virus and stop the progression of HIV disease. Huge reductions have been seen in rates of death and suffering whe...
