Endoscopic surveillance in tylosis

What type of endoscopic surveillance is recommended in patients with tylosis? 

Patients with tylosis should begin endoscopic surveillance at the age of 30. Most cases of esophageal cancer in these patients have been noted in the distal esophagus, so attention should be focused in this area during the examination. Repeat endoscopy should not be conducted more frequently than every 1 to 3 years in these patients.
