Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of Barrett's Esophagus

Recommended Posts

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of Barrett's Esophagus (BE): Short-Term Results. Short-term results show that RFA is safe for BE and achieves 100% replacement of intestinal metaplasia. RFA combined with fundoplication may be offered to patients with BE and medically refractory reflux symptoms. Long-term endoscopic surveillance is needed to determine if the risk of cancer is reduced with this bimodality therapy., S. M. Eldaif, MD. Ann Thorac Surg 2009;87:405-411.
