How should patients with Barrett's esophagus be monitored?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Some patients who have been diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus will develop dysplasia and, in some cases, esophageal carcinoma (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on consistent cohort studies). Endoscopic surveillance is recommended for all patients with Barrett's esophagus as it is superior to other methods for detecting esophageal cancer (SOR: B, based on systematic review).
