Autonomously functioning thyroid nodules (AFTN) are a common cause of hyperthyroid symptoms. While hemithyroidectomy or radioactive iodine ablation have historically been used to treat AFTNs, percutaneous thyroid radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is emerging as a promising option for outpatient therapy. The technique is compared to medical therapy, radioactive iodine therapy, and surgery, with an emphasis on technical differences in the ablation procedure for AFTN vs other benign thyroid nodules.
