Long-Term Results of Ultrasound- Guided Radiofrequency Ablation of Benign Thyroid Nodules: State of the Art and Future Perspectives—A Systematic Review.

“All the studies under examination consistently validated the long-termclinical efficacy and the substantial safety of RFA for the treatment of benign thyroid nodules. Thermal ablation, however, is an operator-dependent technique and should be performed in centers with specific expertise.”

Treatment of thyroid nodules with radiofrequency: a 1‑year follow‑up experience.

“RFA induces substantial volume reduction of predominantly solid thyroid nodules and improves compressive symptoms and cosmetic concerns. RFA does not impact normal thyroid function and has an acceptable safety profile.” 

Ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of benign symptomatic thyroid nodules – initial UK experience.

“RFA is effective at reducing nodule volume and at treating ATFNs and leads to improvement in thyroid-related QoL and cosmetic scores.”

Image-Guided Thermal Ablation as an Alternative to Surgery for Papillary Thyroid Microcarcinoma (PTMC): Preliminary Results of an Italian Experience.

“Image guided thermal ablations appear to be feasible and safe in the treatment of PTMC. These techniques hold the potential to offer patients a minimally invasive curative alternative to surgical resection or active surveillance. These techniques appear to be largely preferred by patients.”

Safety and Efficacy of Radiofrequency Ablation of Thyroid Nodules—Expanding Treatment

“RFA is a safe and efficacious treatment for symptomatic non-functioning and overactive thyroid nodules in our population and is especially effective for smaller nodules. RFA should be considered an alternative for TNs in patients who cannot or do not want to undergo surgery.”

Long-Term Efficacy of a Single Session of RFA for Benign Thyroid Nodules: A Longitudinal 5-Year Observational Study.

“Durable shrinkage of benign thyroid nodules treated by RFA with an improvement of subjective symptoms, establishes the reliability of RFA as alternative to surgery in the management of thyroid nodules, thus representing a remarkable novelty for clinical practice.”

Radiofrequency Ablation of Parathyroid Adenoma: A Novel Treatment Option for Primary Hyperparathyroidism.

“RFA of parathyroid adenomas is a viable alternative to parathyroidectomy in patients who do not meet the criteria for surgery or do not wish to undergo surgery.”
