BACKGROUND The rate of occult adenocarcinoma at esophagectomy in patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) and high-grade dysplasia (HGD) has been reported to be approximately 40%. Recently, it has been suggested that this risk may be overestimated. OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to determine the rate of submucosal invasive adenocarcinoma in patients undergoing esophagectomy for BE after biopsy diagnosis of HGD or intramucosal carcinoma (IMC). A secondary aim was to identify clinical risk factors for… CONTINUE READING
