    Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is a minimally-invasive technique increasingly adopted for resection of superficial neoplasia arising in Barrett's esophagus (BE). High-grade dysplasia or adenocarcinoma confined to the mucosa (pTla) should be treated by EMR rather than esophagectomy, as this...
