Abstract

Imbriglia and Lopusniak [2] discovered early esophageal cancer through aspiration cytology in 1949, and in the same year Andersen et al. [1] diagnosed esophageal cancer by means of brush cytology. In China [5], good results have been obtained with balloon cytology. In 1976, Nabeya [3, 4] developed capsulated brush cytology.
