Mean nodule volume before ablation was 19.2 ± 17.1 ml (mean ± standard deviation) in PLA group vs 35.1 ± 22.2 ml in RFA group (p = 0.002). Mean time for ablation was significantly longer in PLA (21.1 ± 7.2 min vs 14.9 ± 7.2; p<0.001), while mean energy deployment was significantly higher in RFA group (18726 ± 9478 J vs 5493± 2579 J; p< 0.001). Mean volume reduction at 1-2 months was 46% ± 20% in PLA group compared with 49% ± 15% in the RFA group (p = 0.275). Mean volume reduction at 6 months was 66% ± 18% in PLA group and 51 ± 13% in RFA group (p= 0.409). Mean volume reduction at 1 year months was 65% ± 15% in PLA group and 54 ± 19% in RFA group (p=0.440)
