The following on the treatments of adenocarcinomas in Barrett's esophagus contains commentaries on endo mucosal resection; choice between other ablative therapies; the remaining genetic abnormalities following stepwise endoscopic mucosal resection and possible recurrences; the Fotelo-Fotesi PDT; the CT TNM classification of early stages of Barrett's carcinoma; the indications of lymphadenectomy in intramucosal cancer; the differences in lymph node yield in transthoracic versus transhiatal dissection; video-assisted lymphadenectomy; and the importance of the length of proximal esophageal resectipon; and indications of sentinel node dissection.
