BACKGROUND Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is safe and effective for eradicating Barrett's esophagus (BE) and BE-associated early neoplasia. Most RFA studies have limited the baseline length of BE (<10 cm), and therefore little is known about RFA for longer BE. OBJECTIVE To assess the safety and efficacy of RFA with or without prior endoscopic resection (ER) for BE ≥ 10 cm containing neoplasia. DESIGN Prospective trial. SETTING Two tertiary-care centers. PATIENTS This study involved… CONTINUE READING
