Radiofrequency (RF) ablation using the HALO(360) system combined with proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy is a new treatment for Barrett's esophagus (BE). We assessed the safety and effectiveness of this combination therapy at a community-based, BE referral center. After symptom evaluation, endoscopy and histologic assessment, esophageal motility, pH monitoring on PPI, computed tomography, endoscopic ultrasonography and mucosal resection for nodules, we performed HALO(360) ablation followed by… CONTINUE READING
