    Ten Years’ Experience of Screening Patients with
    Barrett’s Oesophagus in a University Teaching
    Hospital

    Gut 41: 303-307, 1997

       

    Medical records from 1984 to 1994 revealed 29,374
    upper gastrointestinal endoscopies. Barrett’s
    oesophageal metaplasia was noted in 409 subjects
    above 50 years of without sex bias. 379 patients
    were investigated thus every year; one subject of
    progressive dysphagia had cancer. 

       

    The authors suggest this to be a wasteful procedure
    if used as a routine.
