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.”
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.”
