BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Barrett's esophagus (BE) recurs in 25% or more of patients treated successfully with radiofrequency ablation (RFA), so surveillance endoscopy is recommended after complete eradication of intestinal metaplasia (CEIM). The frequency of surveillance is informed only by expert opinion. We aimed to model the incidence of neoplastic recurrence, validate the model in an independent cohort, and propose evidence-based surveillance intervals. METHODS: We collected data from the United States Radiofrequency Ablation Registry (US RFA, 2004-2013) and the United Kingdom National Halo Registry (UK NHR, 2007-2015) to build and validate models to predict the incidence of neoplasia recurrence following initially successful RFA...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Endoscopic ablation therapy has become the mainstay of treatment of Barrett's associated dysplasia and intramucosal cancer (IMC). The widely available techniques for ablation are radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and cryotherapy. Our aim was to compare eradication rates of metaplasia and dysplasia with both these modalities. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective review of prospectively collected database of patients who underwent endoscopic therapy for Barrett's dysplasia or IMC from 2006 to 2011 was performed...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: A small but significant proportion of patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE) have persistent dysplasia or intestinal metaplasia (IM) after treatment with radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Cryotherapy is a cold-based ablative modality that is increasingly being used in this setting. We aimed to better understand the efficacy of second-line cryotherapy in BE patients with persistent dysplasia or IM after RFA by conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS: We performed a systematic literature search of PUBMED, EMBASE, and Web of Sciences through September 1, 2017...

BACKGROUND:  Endoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a treatment option for early esophageal squamous cell neoplasia (ESCN); however, long-term follow-up studies are lacking. The risks of local recurrence and "buried cancer" are also uncertain. METHODS:  Patients with flat-type ESCN who were treated with balloon-type ± focal-type RFA were consecutively enrolled. Follow-up endoscopy was performed at 1, 3, and 6 months, and then every 6 months thereafter...

The case was a 70s-year-old man. In July 2016, he was admitted to our hospital with a complaint of epigastralgia. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed type 3 advanced gastric cancer in the vestibule, directly infiltrating the pancreas and the left lobe of the liver to form an abscess, and swelling of the aortic lymph node and multiple liver metastases were observed. The cancer was diagnosed as cT4b(liver/pancreas), N2M1(H1P0CYX), cStage IV and diagnosed it as a chemotherapy policy. We initiated SOX plus trastuzumab therapy from August 2016...

The current standard of treating early Barrett's neoplasia is resection of visible lesions using endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) followed by ablative therapy to the Barrett's segment. There is increasing evidence to support the use of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) where en-bloc resection and lower recurrence rates may be achieved. However, ESD is associated with deep submucosal dissection when compared to EMR. This may increase the risk of complications including stricture formation with subsequent radiofrequency ablation (RFA) therapy...

Patients with Barrett's esophagus (BE)/columnar lined esophagus (CLE) and adenocarcinoma are increasing, in whom 0.61% BE/CLE would develop to adenocarcinoma. The prognosis of esophageal cancer is related to the tumor stage at diagnosis. To standardize the screening, diagnosis and therapy of BE and adenocarcinoma in China, 31 digestive diseases and digestive endoscopy experts and digestive histologists drafted the consensus on the basis of clinical experience and references. The consensus defined BE as a complication of gastroesophageal reflux disease...

Background and aims Endoscopic treatment of Barrett's esophagus (BE) consists of endoscopic resection of visible lesions followed by radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for any remaining flat BE. Because RFA is only justified in flat BE, detection of neoplastic lesions (high grade dysplasia [HGD] and early adenocarcinoma [EAC]) is crucial. We hypothesized that the detection of visible lesions containing HGD or EAC would be superior in BE expert centers compared with community hospitals, thereby supporting centralization of therapy for BE-related neoplasia...

INTRODUCTION: The diversity, technical skills required, and risk inherent to advanced endoscopy techniques all contribute to complex training curricula and steep learning curves. Since trainees develop endoscopy skills at different rates, there has been a shift towards competency-based training and certification. Validated endoscopy performance measures for trainees are, therefore, necessary. The aim of this systematic review was to describe and critically assess the existing evidence regarding measures of performance for trainees in advanced endoscopy...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has many options for management; some of them are complicated by development of portal hypertension (PHT). Doppler ultrasound is an effective method to diagnose and monitor PHT changes after HCC ablation procedures. The aim of this study is to investigate changes in portal pressure hemodynamics of HCC patients following treatment with different interventional strategies: radiofrequency ablation (RFA), microwave ablation (MWA), and transarterial chemoembolization (TACE). A total of 60 patients with HCC were divided into three main groups, and each group received a different type of therapy (RFA, MWA, and TACE)...

Barrett's esophagus (BE) is a premalignant condition that is associated with the development of esophageal adenocarcinoma. Risk factors that have been associated with the development of BE include male gender, Caucasian race, chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease, smoking, age >50 and obesity. The current management of BE is dependent on underlying pathological changes and treatment can range from surveillance endoscopy with daily proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy in the setting of intestinal metaplasia or low-grade dysplasia (LGD) to radiofrequency ablation (RFA), endoscopic mucosal resection or surgical resection in the setting of high-grade dysplasia...

A 71-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of abdominal pain. An upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revealed a type 3 tumor in the lesser curvature of the gastric body. A computed tomography (CT) scan showed synchronous liver metastasis in liver S6 and S8, and a large 8a lymph node that could be encased within the common hepatic artery. The patient was diagnosed with gastric cancer with liver metastasis, Stage Ⅳ, and treated with chemotherapy (S-1 plus CDDP). After 3 courses, a CT scan showed that the liver metastasis in S8 was reduced in size...
