Barrett's Esophagusgives an extensive overview written by the world's leading experts covering the epidemiology, gastroenterology and surgery, as well as the molecular basis of:
  • the precursor lesions leading to the development of Barrett's epithelium;
  • the unique characteristics of Barrett's esophagus;
  • the consequences of malignant degeneration, i.e. adenocarcinoma.

All aspects in terms of diagnosis, secondary prevention, multimodality, medical and surgical treatment are elucidated.
