Suggested clinico-pathological collaborative plan for the management of Barrett's oesophagus

1. Negative for dysplasia: yearly endoscopic surveillance
2. Indefinite/low grade dysplasia: repeat biopsy in 3–6 months until two consecutive negative biopsies or until dysplasia progresses
3. High grade dysplasia: confirm by immediate rebiopsy or the diagnosis is confirmed by another experienced pathologist; oesophagectomy may be considered
