Dr.Guttler’s comments:

  1. Systematic review of RFA for AFTN.
  2. 411 patients treated in 14 studies.
  3. TSH became normal in 71%
  4. Nodule reduction was 70%.
  5. Follow up period was 12 months.
  6. NO CASES OF HYPOTHYROIDISM.
  7. No serious complications.
  8. The RFA effectiveness was not related to nodule size.
  9. CONCLUSION: IT IS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO RADIATION OR SURGERY. IT IS THE ONLY TREATMENT THAT DOES NOT INDUCE HYPOTHYROIDISM.
