Professor Barrett first described
changes in the lining of the esophagus
that occur after prolonged irritation,
such as gastroesophageal reflux, or
chronic heartburn. It can lead to
esophageal cancer in a small, but
real percentage of patients. Fortunately,
the esophagus can be examined with
an endoscopy, and early changes can
be found so that cancer can be prevented.
