Big Benign Thyroid or Parathyroid Cyst and Don’t Want Surgery? Ethanol Ablation PEI is for You.
Before and after Ethanol ablation PEI in my center as out patient. She left in one hour with no complication or even any pain. 3 ml of cyst fluid removed and 1.5 ml of 200 proof medical grade ethanol injected under direct ultrasound surveillance. A 10 fold reduction was obtained with one visit.
The evaluation to see if you are a candidate includes complete endocrine neck ultrasound,biopsy of the solid part seen on the right which was benign and molecular markers were also negative as was a reflex classifier before the PEI. The thickness of the fluid is determined to decide what size needle will be needed for the treatment. Clear fluid suggest a Parathyroid cyst confirmed by Parathyroid hormone needle washout.
