Benign Thyroid Cysts 101: What to do if the fluid is thick and viscous?
Korean study using a large needle to drain hard to evacuate cystic nodules.
Thyroid cyst with thick fluid is usually treated with 2 step PEI procedure. #1 take out a small amount of fluid and inject a small amount of ethanol.
Step #2 Wait 1-2 weeks and when the cysts is liquid complete the ablation.
However a One-Step Ethanol Ablation of Viscous Cystic Thyroid Nodules
with large bore (#16-17 )needle can be used as described I the study.
