The aim of this study was to evaluate the axial and radial distribution of histological markers including hyperplasia of the basal cell layer, elongation of the papillae and dilatation of the intercellular spaces of the squamous epithelium in patients with nonerosive reflux disease compared to controls and to relate this to the macroscopic topography in erosive reflux disease. Two different study populations were included in this report. Endoscopic esophageal biopsies were taken from 21 healthy… CONTINUE READING
