abstract

  • This preliminary porcine study demonstrates the nonthermal and connective tissue sparing mechanism of action of IRE. These features may protect against collecting system damage after IRE ablation of renal tissue. IRE could therefore play an important role in ablation of centrally located renal tumors.
