Paper Abstract

The primary goal of this study was to investigate whether the use of oral steroids would reduce the incidence of stricture formation after balloon photodynamic therapy in patients with dysplasia and early caner in Barrett's esophagus. The effect of other treatment parameters such as light dose and multiple treatments were also investigated.
