The LA Grading of Esophagitis stratifies severity of esophagitis based on endoscopic findings.
Grading of GERD according to the LA classification. A, Grade A: one or more mucosal breaks confined to the mucosal folds, each no longer than 5 mm. B, Grade B: at least one mucosal break more than 5 mm long confined to the mucosal folds and not continuous between the tops of two folds.
In Japan, Kusano et al also studied interobserver agreement for LA grading by three groups of endoscopists with differing levels of experience, but only still endoscopic photographs were used. 18 The kappa values for interobserver agreement were low ranging.

Endoscopic confirmation of esophageal erosions is highly specific for a diagnosis of GERD, but it has low sensitivity, and there is, therefore, the danger that endoscopy alone will underestimate greatly the prevalence of GERD.
Conclusions: Endoscopic grading of the gastroesophageal valve provides useful information about the reflux status but is less useful as an indicator of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) than the presence of esophageal mucosal injury.

Enhanced endoscopic imaging and gastroesophageal reflux disease Rupa Banerjee & D. Nageshwar Reddy Received: 2 February 2011 /Accepted: 24 September 2011 /Published online: 19 October 2011 # Indian Society of Gastroenterology 2011 Abstract Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and GERD-related symptoms are common, and affect 25% to 30% of the general population.
BACKGROUND: Endoscopic grading of the gastroesophageal flap valve (GEFV) is simple, reproducible, and suggested to be a good predictor of reflux activity. This study aimed to investigate the potential correlation between grading of the GEFV and quality of life (QoL), gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) symptoms, esophageal manometry.
