The standard radiofrequency ablation (RFA) protocol for Barrett’s esophagus (BE) encompasses an intermediary cleaning phase between two ablation sessions. A simplified protocol omitting the cleaning phase is less labour intensive, but equally effective in studies based on single ablation procedures. The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of the standard and simplified RFA protocols for the whole treatment pathway for BE, including both circumferential and focal devices.
