Thyroid Ethanol Ablation PEI for Solid and Cystic Nodules.Yes Solid Nodules Can Be treated with Ethanol.
Retention of the ethanol in the nodule and decreased vascularity are keys to being a candidate.
Good response to ethanol therapy.
There is a non-surgical option for those with benign solid and cystic thyroid nodules that does not include hospitalization, a scar and possible surgical complications, or traveling to Europe or Korea for Radiofrequency ablation RFA.
There has been a misconception that only cysts can be treated with ethanol. There are solid nodules that can be successfully treated with PEI here in the USA. Benign symptomatic or cosmetic problem solid nodules need an evaluation to see if they are candidates for ethanol. Successful PEI can be obtained in those solid nodules with low vascularity by Doppler and who retain the ethanol inside the nodule after the treatment.
Santa Monica Thyroid Center is offering a package price for evaluation and PEI treatment.
Evaluation only but not a candidate $750.
Evaluation and PEI treatment $1750
