Abstract

Radiofrequency and laser ablation (RFA and LA) are effective treatments for benign thyroid nodules. Due to their relatively recent introduction into clinical practice, there are limited long-term follow-up studies. This study aimed to evaluate technique efficacy, rate of regrowth and retreatment over 5 years following RFA or LA and to identify predictive factors of outcome.
