BACKGROUND Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a novel, non-thermal form of ablation. We studied the safety and efficacy of IRE for the ablation of liver tissue around the liver hilum. We also studied the ability of triphenyltetrazolium chloride staining (TTC) to predict the zone of ablation after IRE. METHODS Eight swine underwent 20 ablations of the liver and liver hilum. Two monopolar probes were positioned 2 cm apart. IRE was performed using 90 pulses of 2500-3000 V/cm. IRE treatments… CONTINUE READING
