3. Barrett's oesophagus and metaplasia at the oesophagogastric junction : an epidemiological approach
Sammanfattning : The aims of this thesis were to estimate the prevalence of Barrett's oesophagus (B0) and related histological aberrations, to investigate agreement between endoscopy and histology regarding the diagnosis of BO and to investigate risk factors for BO paying particular attention to epidemiological aspects of the study design. We also investigated pancreatic acinar metaplasia (PAM) with special emphasis in its relation to gastro-oesophageal reflux and BO. LÄS MER
