Wen-Lun Wang et al. Lessons from pathological analysis of recurrent early esophageal squamous cell neoplasia after complete endoscopic radiofrequency ablation

Study assessing use of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for esophageal squamous neoplasia. The authors found a recurrence rate of 20 %, even in patients with complete response, probably due to the presence of deep esophageal glandular ductal involvement. RFA should be used with caution in squamous neoplasia.
