“…One contributing factor is cost transparency, which has been implicated in wider adoption internationally 16 . Very recently, a small prospective randomized study from Brazil showed statistically significant decreased hospital utilization and costs (24% cheaper) in comparison to partial thyroidectomy 17 . This study noted the cost of the probe as the major contributor to RFA costs.…”

“…16 Very recently, a small prospective randomized study from Brazil showed statistically significant decreased hospital utilization and costs (24% cheaper) in comparison to partial thyroidectomy. 17 This study noted the cost of the probe as the major contributor to RFA costs. Yue et al's 2016 study showed probe costs as the driving factor for greater expense of RFA in comparison to open lobectomy.…”

“…RFA can be performed in a clinic, removing the cost of an operating room. From a financial perspective, RFA of indeterminate nodules could potentially be more cost-friendly than thyroidectomy, as is the case for both benign [ 31 ] and low-risk papillary thyroid carcinomas [ 32 ]. Finally, patients undergoing RFA typically only complain of minimally discomforting symptoms, which typically resolve on their own.…”
