Although the scientific scope of the Organization for Specialized Studies on Diseases of the Esophagus (OESO) conferences is broad and includes advancement in all disorders of the upper gastrointestinal tract, including physiology and pathophysiology of gastrointestinal motility or mucosal disorders, each congress is focused on a specific topic of common interest. For the 10th OESO meeting, the selected theme is Barrett's esophagus, because of its importance and many lingering controversies as well as many advances in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of this disease. Barrett's esophagus is a disorder in which the lining of the esophagus is damaged by stomach acid. People with Barrett's esophagus have an increased risk of esophageal cancer. The volume consists of commentaries on all aspects of this disease, from incidence and etiology, to treatment.
