Our stand will concentrate on the treatment of early oesophageal cancer. We would focus in our role treating Barrett’s oesophagus (BO) which is a metaplastic change of the epithelium of the oesophagus, caused by injury and inflammation related to gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).  In the case of BO, the normal squamous epithelium is replaced by a columnar epithelium, deemed intestinal metaplasia (IM).  Patients with BO undergo surveillance endoscopy with multiple biopsies of the diseased tissue every one to three years in order to detect cancer at the earliest possible tumor stage.  If left untreated, Barrett’s can progress to esophageal cancer – which has an 85% mortality rate at 5 years and a treatment (esophagectomy – removal of a large portion of the esophagus) that is terrible for a patient’s quality of life.

 

Despite its rapid clinical acceptance, RFA is still a relatively new treatment strategy for BO.  As Barrett’s Oesophagus is a condition of the oesophagus with a known progression rate to cancer.  The elimination of this disease while in a pre-malignant stage has been studied by numerous investigators from the US and Europe.  A growing body of literature suggests that RFA is a safe and very effective intervention for eliminating both metaplastic and dysplastic BO.  Several non-financial and financial benefits to the patient and institution from the eradication of Barrett’s using RFA have been identified, particularly as compared to the existing alternative surgical and endoscopic therapies which can be costly and offer less than ideal outcomes for the patientse, glucose levels, track physical activity and also their body weight, using the wireless scales provided. The app sets out on the one hand to make the patient aware of his/her state of health, and on the other to enable the doctor to see the medical data in context. . Lastly, depending on the information supplied by the patient, the app can remind patients to take their medicine, or of appointments with the doctor, as it is known that around 50% of all patients forget to follow their treatment properly.
