Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Irreversible electroporation (IRE) ablation is gaining popularity over the last decade as a nonthermal alternative to thermal ablation technologies such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and Microwave ablation (MWA). This review serves as a practical guide for applying IRE to colorectal cancer liver metastases (CRLM) for interventional radiologists, oncologists, surgeons, and anesthesiologists. It covers patient selection, procedural technique, anesthesia, imaging, and outcomes.
