How is LGD managed in Barrett Esophagus

How is LGD managed in patients with Barrett Esophagus

LGD must be confirmed on a repeat EGD within 6 months, and an expert GI pathologist is also required to review the biopsy samples before the initiation of annual endoscopic surveillance.

Surveillance endoscopy continues until there is no dysplasia on two consecutive endoscopic examinations.

Some experts assert that aggressive ablation of LGD is an option and patients can be reassured that 60% of patients with LGD will regress to no dysplasia after a mean follow-up of 4 years.
