Barrett Esophagus, WRS Press
The (dubious) Barrett esophagus/ Longitudinal shortening of the esophagus can be due to vagal stimulation, to hormonal influences, and to the direct effect of acid pH on the esophageal mucosa. It shortens reflexly from inflation of the organ at radiologic or endoscopic examination. All of these factors are at work in patients with supposed BE. They cause a tubular hiatal transtract that is mistaken by examiners for esophagus lined with gastric mucosa. The supposed metaplasia can vary up to 9 cm over a few weeks or vanish entirely as more or less stomach is pulled through the diaphragm. Metaplasia from unspecialized to more specialized tissue is unknown elsewhere and is not likely here where there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for the appearances. Microscopic diagnosis is illusory as it depends on the distance of the biopsy from the incisors or from a manometrically localized "sphincter" which may be a hiatal squeeze. The epithelium is indistinguishable from intestinal metaplasia of gastric mucosa - which indeed it is as demonstrated by its ability to take up technitium pertechnetate.
