Kevin T. Watkins, MD, chief of upper gastrointestinal and general oncologic surgery at Stony Brook University Hospital, on Long Island, is a pioneer using irreversible electroporation (IRE) to remove pancreatic tumors. Dr. Watkins was the first surgeon in the world to use IRE technology to treat pancreatic cancer. In the past two years he has treated more than 20 patients with pancreatic cancer at Stony Brook with IRE, some who traveled thousands of miles to Stony Brook for the surgery. The treatment is a last-hope option for patients who have run out of other options, and whose cancer has not spread to other areas of the body.

banana nightline or a surgical liberation system is the first to use a

reversible electroporation also known as pylori to treat soft-tissue lesions

two or more nando knife iri disposable electrodes are positioned n or around

the lesion and an electrical field is created between and in a series of micro

second pulses which induces cell death in the encompassed soft-tissue unlike

crier lovelace in or radiofrequency ablation which use thermal treatment to

destroy tissue iri treats without exposing tissue too extreme cold or heat

eliminating a major cause of treatment failure

and possible damage to normal tissue

i retrieve similar volumes of tissue to our essay and cry or surgery typically

in a fraction of the time less than four minutes for a four by three centimeter


nana night iri treatment

is minimally invasive and is performed under general anesthesia with ultrasound

or c_t_ guidance

pre-operative imaging allows precise calculation of the tissue volume and

shape to be treated

and age the planning of appropriate positioning for the man alive iri


another night the higher retrenchment consists of a series of ninety extremely

short electrical pulses it's less than one hundred millions of a second

cell death is induced within seconds and the patient can often be released from

the hospital the same day

mennonite iri treatment induces cell death in soft-tissue only

nandan ivory electrodes are placed in proximity to the targeted lesion

but unlike thermal insulation technologies surrounding critical

structures including nerves and blood vessels remain functional

during treatment met a nice unique action

opens prominent nanoscience pores in the cell membrane

causing irreversible damage which rapidly induces unnatural cell death

after nine tonight iri treatment cells that form the nerves blood vessels and

other collection is tissues in the treated area remain viable reducing the

risk of damage to the structures

microscopic imaging after treatment reveals a sharply delineated separation

between affected and unaffected cells

the net on i've treated area begins to resolve immediately after the procedure

as the bodies normal healing response produces cells that engulfed and remove

treated cells from the region much like the healing process of a bruise

doppler ultrasound imaging

during then tonight the blaze and demonstrates that they can see of blood

vessels as small as one millimeter in diameter into treated area

thirty days after nine tonight surgical affliction

c_t_ and ultrasound imaging reveal a mostly normal appearance

with little remaining evidence of the i_r_a_ treatment

as seen on imaging critical structures continue to function normally

blood flow in the treated area dates healing and minimizes potential

treatment side effects
