Limitations of this case series include the lack of a control arm, and that the results are purely anecdotal. Future studies should include a randomized, controlled trial for comparison and cost-benefit analysis. In this case series, the method produced favorable outcomes each time. It could be said that in future studies with a larger randomized, controlled trial cohort, there may be cases in which this treatment option fails.
