Abstract: Introduction: Barrett́s esophagus (BE) is characterized by the exchange of esophageal squamous epithelium for intestinal type in response to chronic reflux in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).It is an important precursor of esophageal adenocarcinoma. Nissen fundoplication (NF) is an antireflux surgery which aims to reduce esophageal mucosa inflammation. Changes in the immunohistochemical expression patterns of mucins (MUC1, MUC2, MUC5AC and MUC6) and CDX2 in BE before and after NF may be useful to identify the expression patterns of these markers and, possibly, to detect cases with risks of malignancy. Objectives: To investigate and compare mucin and CDX2 immunoexpression in BE patients with GERD before and after NF. Material and methods: This retrospective study comprised 25 patients with GERD and BE who had been submitted to NF. The patients had a 3-year minimum follow up. Histological and immunohistochemical analyses of endoscopic biopsies were performed before and after the surgery, comparing inflammation and MUC1, MUC2, MUC5AC, MUC6 and CDX2 immunoexpression. The percentage of Barrett mucosa cells with expression to the studied markers was estimated at 0%-25%, 25%-75% and 75%-100%. McNemar and Stuart-William tests were used and the significance level of <0.05 was applied. Results and conclusion: Concerning the presence or the intensity of inflammation and mucin and CDX2 expression in BE, there were no significant differences before and after NF. The surgical procedure did not promote any changes in the expression of these glycoproteins in BE.
