Comments:
1.Ten eligible studies were included, with a total sample size of 270 patients and 415 thyroid nodules.
2. The pooled proportion of complications of both RFA (5.8%, adjusted 1.6%) and EA (1.6%) were low (p = 0.8479)
3. Both P)EI and RFA do the job with low complications and good results.
4.However, only PEI is available at this time in the USA.
5. Several centers do this.
6. Mayo clinic under Dr.Ian Hay PEI for cancer.
7. Santa Monica Thyroid Center’s Richard Guttler ( www.thyroid.com) offers this as well as for thyroid and parathyroid cysts.
