Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a promising novel technique for the ablation of tumors. An advantage of IRE is its mechanism to remove undesired cells by affecting the cell membrane without thermally destructing blood vessels, nerves and the surrounding tissues. Several clinical trials for applying IRE to human organs such as liver, pancreas, and kidney are conducted and studies about IRE ablation for gastrointestinal tumors also have been conducted recently. Here, we developed new endoscopic IRE device, and studied about its effectiveness and feasibility in animal model.
