Brief summary
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether preventative placement of a removable
oesophageal stent reduces the rate of scar tissue, or stricture formation after removing the
precancerous or early cancerous Barrett's mucosa by Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR). The
stent will be placed 10-14 days after initial EMR. The stent will then be removed 8 weeks
later by repeat Endoscopy. Patients will be followed up weekly following insertion of the
oesophageal stent.
