1. Biased assessment of 3D optical coherence tomography in a single post-radiofrequency ablation patient without histological correlation

    case report entitled “Three-dimensional optical coherence tomography of Barrett’s esophagus and buried glands beneath neosquamous epithelium following radiofrequency ablation,” was recently published by Adler et al. in Endoscopy [1]. Based on the title and abstract, we fully expected the authors to present evidence showing that three-dimensional optical coherence tomography (3D-OCT) was able to detect buried Barrett’s after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) that was otherwise not detectable with conventional methods. Unfortunately, the authors report a single ablation-naïve case where it seems that buried glands were detected on biopsy yet not specifically detected with 3D-OCT or explicitly described in their findings ...
