Barrett's esophagus is a condition in which the stratified squamous epithelium in the distal esophagus is replaced by columnar epithelium abnormal. This change in this epithelium is prone to malignancy and it would be a consequence of the disease of chronic gastroesophageal reflux. The diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus is performed by endoscopy and histological dysplastic epithelium. Once a confirmed diagnosis is carried out periodic controls for the monitoring of injuries. Dysplasia’s low degree only need monitoring because hardly progress to cancer. While high-grade lesions require invasive methods such as esophagectomy, endoscopic ablation, endoscopic mucosal resection or mixing methods. The esophagectomy has many postoperative complications why we prefer the methods endoscopic. The objective will be to review the current literature on the different endoscopic treatment options for Barrett's esophagus.
