The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Practice Guideline Series: Guidelines for the Management of Barrett's Esophagus With High-Grade Dysplasia ANNALS OF THORACIC SURGERY Fernando, H. C., Murthy, S. C., Hofstetter, W., Shrager, J. B., Bridges, C., Mitchell, J. D., Landreneau, R. J., Clough, E. R., Watson, T. J. 2009; 87 (6): 1993-2002


The management of Barrett's esophagus with high-grade dysplasia is controversial. The standard of care has traditionally been esophagectomy. However, a number of treatment options aimed at esophageal preservation are increasingly being utilized by many centers. These esophageal-sparing approaches include endoscopic surveillance, mucosal ablation, and endoscopic mucosal resection. In this guideline we review the best evidence supporting these commonly used strategies for high-grade dysplasia to better define management and guide future investigation.
