Regression of BE

The most important aspect of BE is its propensity to progress to dysplasia and AC. Because medical therapy does not seem to decrease this risk, the goals of treating patients with BE have not included modulating this risk. Our group and other authors have recently shown that an effective operation cannot only limit progression, but in some patients it can lead to the regression of BE (Hofstetter et al, 2001). In our own series of 54 patients with short segment BE (< 3 cm), 30 (55%) had complete regression of their disease at a mean follow-up of 43 months after surgery. Other authors have also reported the regression of dysplasia after surgery (DeMeester and DeMeester, 1999; Low et al, 1999).
