Description

GI Fellows! Come hang out with Prateek Sharma, MD, FASGE, Marcia Canto, MD, MHS, FASGE and Amitabh Chak, MD, FASGE as they lead Part II of the next interactive webinar in Management of Barrett's Esophagus. If you missed Part I of this event, you may view it on-demand on GI Leap, under the Fellows Corner section.

Barrett’s esophagus is diagnosed in 5-15% of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease. It is often a precursor to esophageal adenocarcinoma however the condition often goes undiagnosed. Patients with reflux disease who are male, over age 50, or white, and who smoke or have central obesity or a family history of Barrett esophagus or esophageal adenocarcinoma, should undergo initial screening endoscopy and, if no dysplasia is noted, surveillance endoscopy every 3 to 5 years. Dysplasia is treated with endoscopic eradication by ablation, resection, or both. During this Endo-Hangout, we will discuss the multiple approaches of therapy of dysplastic Barrett’s esophagus. The two GI Fellows moderating this session will be Neal Mehta, MD, and Judy Trieu, MD, MPH. We welcome our GI Fellows to joining us in this interactive webinar and discussion.


The recording of this webinar will be added by November 7, 2020.
