Abstract

In order to establish a precise pathological diagnosis and to decide the correct approach for esophageal dysplasia or early esophageal cancer, it is desirable to obtain a full thickness mucosal and submucosal biopsy. Strip biopsy has proven to be effective for the treatment and for the diagnosis of flat or sessile lesions of the gastrointestinal tract [1–3]. In this study, we evaluate the efficacy of strip biopsy for the diagnosis and treatment of polypoid or flat lesions of the esophagus.
