Abstract

Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a promising novel technique for the ablation of tumor. IRE has an advantage over other ablation technique in its mechanism to remove undesired cells by affecting the cell membrane without thermally destructing surrounding blood vessels, nerves. There have been recent concerns regarding the potential use of IRE as an ablative modality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of IRE ablation according to therapeutic method in colon cancer animal model.
