Abstract
Objectives To review the effectiveness and safety of chemical ablation using ethanol or OK-432 for the treatment of TGDCs (thyroglossal duct cysts). Methods MEDLINE and EMBASE databases were searched up to May 29, 2020, to identify studies reporting the safety and efficacy of chemical ablation using ethanol or OK-432 for the treatment of TGDCs. The search query consisted of synonyms of thyroglossal duct cysts and ethanol or OK-432 ablation. The pooled success and complication rates were calculated using the inverse variance method to calculate weights, and pooled proportions were determined using the DerSimonian-Laird random-effects method. Results Seven original articles including a total of 129 patients were included. The efficacy of chemical ablation was acceptable, with a pooled success rate of 70% (95% CI, 47-86%). The pooled success rate of ethanol ablation was superior to that of OK-432 ablation, although with equivocal statistical significance (84% vs. 51%, p = 0.055). Repeat ethanol ablation achieved a pooled success rate of 47% (95% CI, 24-71%). The chemical ablation procedures were safe, with a pooled major complication rate of 0.9% (95% CI, 0.1-5.8%). Conclusions Chemical ablation using ethanol or OK-432 for the treatment of TGDCs had acceptable success and low complication rates, and repeat treatment after initial failure was also feasible. In addition, it is an inexpensive and simple procedure and could therefore be considered a first-line treatment for TGDCs.
