The physician’s comment at the 9 month visit.

                                          “The results were marvelous.”

69 Y/O physician with large visible mass noted for several years. ENT drained it several times but it recurred. He suggested  surgery. A fellow physician in the small town told him about Ethanol ablation.He came down from Northern California for an evaluation.

9 month Ultrasound: 90 % reduction in volume. No cystic areas left

echo pattern is that of post ablation hyperechoic mixed pattern.

Wow no hospital admission, no surgery, no post op complications,

no scar, and no 2 week recovery time after surgery.
