Abstract

Ablative therapy has drawn attention for cancer treatment as minimally invasive therapy. Recently, irreversible electroporation which has a different concept from the existing ablation method has emerged. Although gastrointestinal tract cancer is commonly managed by ablation such as liver, pancreas cancer, hollow viscus cancer is extremely challenging for applying ablative therapy because of its high perforation risk. Therefore, several studies about hollow viscus irreversible electroporation will be introduced in this review regarding its pre‐clinical relevance.
