patients with barretts esophagus and/or early esophageal adenocarcinoma who have undergone endoscopic mucosal resection

Detailed Description:

Barrett's esophagus (BE) is a complication of gastroesophageal reflux disease in which the normal squamous lining of the esophagus is replaced by specialized columnar epithelium.1 Approximately 5%-10% of patients diagnosed with BE are thought to be at risk of developing esophageal adenocarcinoma.2 Patients with high-grade dysplasia (HGD) on biopsy are at the greatest cancer risk³. EMR is being performed clinically in our Barrett's Esophagus Unit on a regular basis during endoscopy for patients with Barrett's Esophagus and/or early esophageal adenocarcinoma. There are two predominant endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) techniques exist using FDA approved devices - the EMR cap method using a transparent cap/snare combination and the endoscopic variceal ligation method using a band ligator/snare combination to resect tissue.
