Background The development of Barrett's esophagus is poorly understood, but it has been suggested that cardiac mucosa is a precursor of intestinal type metaplasia and that inflammation of cardiac mucosa may play a role in the formation of Barrett's esophagus. The present study was undertaken to...
- Histology of Gastroesophageal Junction in Fetal and Pediatric Autopsy. Young S. Park, William O.; Hyo Jin Park, William O.; Gyeong Hoon Kang; Chong Jai Kim; Je G. Chi // Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine;Apr2003, Vol. 127 Issue 4, p451
Context.--There is much debate over whether the gastric cardia exists from birth as a normal structure or is a metaplastic structure that develops as the result of gastroesophageal reflux disease. This question has become a matter of concern since the incidence of adenocarcinoma at the...
- Cytokeratin and DAS-1 immunostaining reveal similarities among cardiac mucosa, CIM, and Barrettâ€™s esophagus DeMeester, Steven R.; Wickramasinghe, Kumari S.; Lord, Reginald V.N.; Friedman, Adam; Balaji, Nagammapudur S.; Chandrasoma, Parakrama T.; Hagen, Jeffrey A.; Peters, Jeffrey H.; DeMeester, Tom R. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Oct2002, Vol. 97 Issue 10, p2514
