t-effective in these disease states."

"I am pleased that SAGES's new practice guideline for the surgical treatment of GERD includes recommendations for the management of Barrett's esophagus as well," noted C. Daniel Smith, MD, immediate Past President of SAGES, and Professor of Surgery and Chair of the Department of Surgery at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville.  "Barrett's is common in our practice and is the best known risk factor for the development of esophageal adenocarcinoma.  We incorporate radiofrequency ablation in our esophageal program at Mayo Clinic, along with anti-reflux surgery, as an early intervention to avert cancer development."

"The SAGES practice guideline is the first set of official recommendations from a professional society which have included the most recently published clinical trial outcomes related to the use of endoscopic RFA for treating Barrett's esophagus," commented David S. Utley, M.D., chief medical officer for BARRX Medical.  "We are pleased that the SAGES guideline has provided the recommendation that endoscopic RFA has clinical utility and should be offered as an option for patients with non-dysplastic and dysplastic Barrett's esophagus based on the quality of the clinical evidence.  Verification, by SAGES, that RFA is a medically necessary option for patients with Barrett's is important as physicians, patients and payers consider this endoscopic treatment."
