Angelchik Prosthesis Complicates Treatment of Adenocarcinoma in Barrett's Esophagus

Angelchik Prosthesis Complicates Treatment of Adenocarcinoma in Barrett's Esophagus Abstract • Indications for use of the Angelchik prosthesis remain controversial, and many surgeons actively involved in the treatment of reflux disease have not used the device. We describe a case that illustrates difficulties associated with resection of a tumor in the presence of this prothesis. Such experience suggests that patients known to have Barrett's esophagus might be better treated with standard antireflux procedures. (Arch Surg. 1991;126:784-785) References 1. Condon RE.

Abstract

Abstract • Indications for use of the Angelchik prosthesis remain controversial, and many surgeons actively involved in the treatment of reflux disease have not used the device. We describe a case that illustrates difficulties associated with resection of a tumor in the presence of this prothesis. Such experience suggests that patients known to have Barrett's esophagus might be better treated with standard antireflux procedures. (Arch Surg. 1991;126:784-785) References 1. Condon RE.
