Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) uses an an electrode mounted either on a balloon or endoscope to deliver heat energy to the diseased lining of the esophagus. A number of studies have demonstrated that RFA safely results in a high rate of complete eradication of Barrett’s esophagus, as well as reduces progression of the disease to high-grade Dysplasia and Cancer. Because of a favorable safety profile, studies have been performed assessing the efficacy of RFA for the earliest stages of Barrett’s, as well as later stages.
