Liver

The liver, due to its function, is affected by metastases more frequently than primitive tumours.

Neoplasms or metastases located in the hepatic hilum and its vital structures (portal vein, hepatic artery, main biliary pathway, vena cava) are often difficult to manage with conventional techniques (surgery and thermal ablation).

Electrochemotherapy can be a valid option in these patients as by not using heat sources it kills tumoural cells and allows to protect noble structures surrounding the lesions and regenerate healthy tissue.

We would advise you to consult your doctor to find out if electrochemotherapy can help you.

The technologies used to treat tumors and liver metastases are Cliniporator® and Cliniporator® VITAE.
