ABSTRACT
Barren's oesophagus is thought to be a disease that occurs predominantly in whites compared with other ethnic groups. A BSG report, however, found surprisingly little data in this area and identified only two papers with a total of 56 cases of Barrett's oesophagus evaluating racial differences. This article conducts a retrospective case control study to determine the incidence of Barrett's oesophagus in Asian and white patients. It was found that white race is a strong risk factor for Barrett's oesophagus although the reasons for this remain unclear.

    Abstract  A 56-year-old woman underwent a laparoscopic Heller–Dor operation for esophageal achalasia in June 2002. As dysphagia became exacerbated and the oral intake became extremely poor, an esophagectomy was thus considered to be indicated. In September 2005, a transhiatal...
