  • OBJECTIVE Hiatal hernia is common in patients with Barrett's esophagus. We sought to evaluate the effect of hiatal hernia size and initial columnar segment length on the success of radiofrequency ablation of Barrett's esophagus. METHODS A phase II clinical trial was conducted aimed at evaluating the success of radiofrequency ablation in eradicating Barrett's esophagus. Success was defined as complete replacement of the columnar lining with squamous mucosa and lack of intestinal metaplasia… CONTINUE READING
