OBJECTIVE Endoscopic mucosal ablation is a promising technique that is used to treat dysplastic Barrett's oesophagus. The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of two promising techniques, argon plasma coagulation (APC) and photodynamic therapy (PDT), in the ablation of dysplastic Barrett's oesophagus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-six patients with dysplastic Barrett's oesophagus (21 M, median age 60 years, median length 4 cm, 23 low-grade dysplasia (LGD… CONTINUE READING
