Abstract

Conventionally, surgical treatment or RAI therapy was the standard therapy for autonomously functioning thyroid nodules (AFTN), but treatment results of percutaneous ethanol injection therapy (PEIT) under the guidance of ultrasonography were reported after the 1990s. Ethanol used for PEIT directly destroys tissue by coagulating proteins and secondarily destroys tissue by forming thrombi in microscopic blood vessels, resulting in a size reduction in tumors and normalization of thyroid hormone.
