Practice Guidelines Confirm Utility of Endoscopic Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) for the Treatment of Barrett's Esophagus

The medical position statement was then created, which includes information affirming the utility of RFA therapy as a treatment option for eradication of Barrett's esophagus.

More specifically, the medical position statement recommends endoscopic eradication therapy – such as RFA – for patients with confirmed high-grade dysplasia (advanced precancerous cells) as opposed to watchful waiting or immediate esophagectomy. For patients with confirmed low-grade dysplasia (less advanced precancerous cells), endoscopic eradication therapy is recommended as a therapeutic option and should be discussed with patients as such.

Patients who present with non-dysplastic (early precancerous cells) Barrett's, the AGA states, "Although endoscopic eradication therapy is not suggested for the general population of patients with Barrett's esophagus in the absence of dysplasia, we suggest that RFA, with or without endoscopic mucosal resection (EM
