Nonfunctioning Parathyroid Cyst: Simple Aspiration and Ethanol Ablation
For symptomatic nonfunctioning PCs, simple aspiration is a first-line procedure for diagnosis and treatment, whereas EA is a subsequent treatment modality suitable for recurrent PCs.
US examination b y expert thyroid/parathyroid sonologist plays an important role in patients with primary HPT in the preoperative localization of hyperfunctioning parathyroid lesions. Careful US examination and the use of an FNA-PTH assay can distinguish incidental parathyroid lesions from thyroid lesions. Symptomatic nonfunctioning PCs can be nonsurgically cured by US-guided simple aspiration and EA.
