Barrett Oesophagus is one of the factors of risk directly related to the Oesophagus Adenocarcinoma. The risk of oesophagus cancer is clearly related to the level of dysplasia, although this incidence is very variable according to different studies.
The Endoscopy Ablation with Radio-frequency is an effective and safe technique that can decrease the progression of dysplasia and adenocarcinoma in a significant rate.
The indications of Endoscopy Ablation with Radio-frequency in Barrett Oesophagus depend above all on the presence of dysplasia and on how deep is the affectation. La implementation of this technique was preceded by multiple studies supporting its encouraging results.
One of the main advantages of the endoscopy treatment of Ablation with Radio-frequency in the patients presenting dysplasia with risk of evolving into an oesophagus adenocarcinoma, is the low rate of complications with respect to the treatment that was up to now considered standard: the oesophagostomy (extraction of the portion of oesophagus affected by means or surgery).
It is important to point out that the recurrent incidence after the treatment of Endoscopy Ablation with Radio-frequency is mucho lower than with other techniques of ablation.
Clínica ServiDigest has available the most advanced RF equipment with the latest generation of catheters for ablation by radio- frequency and with Units specialised in Barrett Oesophagus and in the Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
