Sanne N. van Munster et al. Extending treatment criteria for Barrett’s neoplasia: results of a nationwide cohort of 138 endoscopic submucosal dissection procedures

The outcomes of 130 complete endoscopic submucosal dissections in patients with Barrettʼs esophagus-related neoplasia are reported. The R0 rate for high grade dysplasia/T1a esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) was 87 % and for T1b EAC it was 49 %. As only 29 % of patients with an R1 resection had residual EAC at first endoscopic follow-up after 3 months, careful endoscopic examination at 3 months may help in selecting the optimal treatment approach.
