Surgical excision is the recommended treatment for this particular tumour.

In cases of late diagnosis the tumour can be locally advanced (stage III) and could have infiltrated some arterial vessels located in close proximity to the pancreas such as the superior mesenteric artery and the celiac trunk. In these cases surgery and other ablative techniques can be difficult to perform.

Electrochemotherapy can represent a valid alternative because, by not using heat sources, it allows protection of the noble structures surrounding the lesion and regenerates the healthy tissue instead of the neoplastic one.

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

The technologies used for the treatment of locally advanced pancreatic cancer are Cliniporator® and Cliniporator® VITAE.
