The goal of this review is to evaluate, through a review of the surgical literature, the role of esophagectomy in the management of Barrett's esophagus as it evolves histologically from intestinal metaplasia through increasing grades of dysplasia to adenocarcinoma. We precisely define the indications and therapeutic modalities of esophagectomy for high-grade dysplasia, superficial adenocarcinoma, and invasive adenocarcinoma.
