18 months before ethanol and RFA combination therapy
After 1 ethanol and 3 RFA treatments.
The patient had a large complex cystic solid nodule as seen in this picture before treatment.Her doctors insisted that surgery was the only answer. She found me on the web at my website thyroid.com. She traveled to see for the initial evaluation and ethanol therapy, and traveled to Korea for the RFA before I had begun my own RFA treatments. There was symptomatic and cosmetic issues. She had a 2 part treatment plan. First drain and treat the cystic component with ethanol. This first part completely relieved her symptoms. However she still had a large mass that was a cosmetic issue.
In a series of 3 Thyroid RF treatments over 2 years, her nodule decreased 50% in the first visit, 75% in the second and 95% after the third.
In 2020 evaluation her nodule was 85 ml before and 6ml after. A reduction of 94%.
Her compression and coughing symptoms were relieved by the PEI and the cosmetic issue was cured by the 3 RFA treatments.
Her scores were 5-10/4-4 before and 0/0 symptom/ cosmetic after.
Call me for either ethanol or RFA treatments.
