Abstract

Purpose

Treatment of unresectable locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) usually includes chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy in an attempt to downstage these tumors to the extent of resectability, but outcomes remain poor. Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is an ablative modality that may be useful in this population. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety of percutaneous IRE in patients with pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
