The prevalence of heterotopic gastric mucosa of the upper esophagus (inlet patch) has a wide range depending on the method and detail of examination. The inlet patch is believed to be a congenital malformation that rarely leads to symptoms. We aimed to quantify the prevalence of the inlet patch in a non-referred population and determine if there are any risk factors or associated symptoms. Men between ages 50 and 79 presenting for routine colonoscopy at two clinical sites were recruited to undergo an upper endoscopy. Endoscopists were prompted to examine for the presence of the inlet patch. Of the 822 enrolled patients, 795 had data regarding the presence of an inlet patch. Of these, 55 (6.9%) had an inlet patch identified. Education was inversely associated (odds ratio [OR] advanced degree vs. high school or less = 0.310; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.111, 0.869), and tobacco use was positively associated with the presence of an inlet patch (current vs. never smokers OR = 2.87; 95% CI = 1.23, 6.69; former vs. never smokers OR = 1.93; 95% CI = 0.922, 4.02). No association between the inlet patch and symptoms of heartburn, globus, or dysphagia was found. In a cross-sectional study of colon cancer screenees, inlet patches were common and were not associated with symptoms. Tobacco use appears to be associated with the presence of an inlet patch.
