Study highlights from November issue of GIE: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy
Date:11/23/2009

OAK BROOK, Ill. November 23, 2009 In the November issue of GIE: Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, the monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), a study out of Stanford University found that Barrett's esophagus was detected in six percent of asymptomatic women undergoing endoscopic screening.

Barrett's esophagus is a condition where the lining of the esophagus changes due to chronic inflammation, generally from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Barrett's esophagus is important to recognize as it may increase the risk of developing esophageal cancer. It has been detected in approximately 10 percent of patients with GERD, but previous studies have demonstrated a similar prevalence of Barrett's esophagus in asymptomatic adults. The majority of patients found to have asymptomatic Barrett's esophagus in previous studies were male and white.

Whether asymptomatic Barrett's esophagus occurs in women has not been well studied. Researchers from Stanford University and Palo Alto VA Health Care System in California performed a prospective study to determine the prevalence of Barrett's esophagus in asymptomatic women undergoing routine screening colonoscopy or endoscopic examination before bariatric surgery. Short-segment Barrett's esophagus was detected in six percent of 126 asymptomatic women undergoing these procedures. Patients found to have B
