- PreviewIn the January issue of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Ueshima et al1 describe the feasibility and safety of catheter-directed irreversible electroporation (IRE) of a normal common bile duct (CBD) in an animal model. The authors report the results of their initial experience with a novel catheter (20 mm long, 7F) using a modified 240-cm balloon dilation catheter, which serves as a monopolar device to perform direct IRE at 2000 V, 90 pulses, and 100-μs pulse. On the basis of these preliminary results.
