Table 2 Histology of IP in all patients with biopsy targeted to IP, and separately in two subgroups stratified according to maximum diameter of IP (percentages of columns)

From: The prevalence of gastric heterotopia of the proximal esophagus is underestimated, but preneoplasia is rare - correlation with Barrett’s esophagus

  All patients with biopsy, n = 46 Maximum diameter of IP
<1 cm, n = 24 ≥1 cm, n = 22
Number (%) Number (%) Number (%)
Cardia mucosa 16 (35%) 10 (42%) 6 (27%)
Cardia plus corpus mucosa 12 (26%) 7 (29%) 5 (23%)
Corpus mucosa 12 (26%) 4 (17%) 8 (36%)
Only squamous epithelium 6 (13%) 3 (12%) 3 (14%)
