Javier Aranda-Hernández et al. Hot avulsion may be effective as salvage treatment for focal Barrett’s esophagus remaining after endoscopic therapy for dysplasia or early cancer: a preliminary study

This is the first study to examine hot avulsion for the removal of small residual Barrett’s areas (< 1 cm) following standard Barrett’s eradication therapy. Among 35 patients, hot avulsion achieved complete Barrett’s eradication with only one patient requiring a second treatment. Bleeding occurred in two patients, and cautery artifacts impaired patho„logy assessment in 20 % of specimens.
