Electrochemotherapy is a therapeutic procedure for treating cutaneous tumours via electroporation using certified electrodes.
The electroporation process is combined with local chemotherapy.
After locating the exact position of the tumor, The chemo agent is injected locally around the tumor or intravenous in a low concentration.
Position the electrodes around the tumor and the generate 8 pulses of 1000 Volts with a duration of one millisecond. This will open the cell membrane of the tumor cells and make them permeable
After the electrical impulses have stopped, the membrane of the cells will close. The chemo agent is now trapped inside the tumor cells and can break down the DNA of the cell.
The DNA of the tumor cell is breaking down and the cell go into necrosis.
