Abstract

Purpose: To evaluate the role of smoking in Barrett’s esophagus (BE) and erosive esophagitis (E) compared to endoscopic controls with no BE or E. Smoking is considered a cause of both BE and E, but results on this topic are quite controversial. Methods: Patients with BE (339), E (462) and controls (619: 280 with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)-negative and 339 with GERD-positive anamnesis) were recruited in 12 Italian endoscopy units. Data were obtained from structured questionnaires. Results: Among former smokers, a remarkable upward linear trend was found in BE for all smoking-related predictors. In particular, having smoked for more than 32 years increased the risk more than two times (OR 2.44, 95 % CL 1.33–4.45). When the analysis was performed in the subgroup of subjects with GERD-negative anamnesis, the risk of late quitters (
