Summary:
A small group of patients with locally advanced unresectable pancreatic carcinoma suffered no major ill effects -- pancreatitis or fistula formation -- after undergoing percutaneous CT-guided irreversible electroporation.

A small group of patients with locally advanced unresectable pancreatic carcinoma suffered no major ill effects -- pancreatitis or fistula formation -- after undergoing percutaneous CT-guided irreversible electroporation (IRE) as a therapy. IRE is a nonthermal ablation technology that is safe near vascular and ductal structures.

"These early results represent a good alternative to intraoperative IRE ablation, and offer a safe and feasible primary local treatment for locally advanced pancreatic cancer," said Maria Paola Belfiore, a researcher at the Institute of Radiology, Second University of Naples.

Dr. Belfiore will present the study on May 6 at the 2014 ARRS Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA.
