Electrochemotherapy (ECT) is a non- thermal tumour ablation modality,safe and effective on any type of solid tumour. Its use is presently standardized to skin and subcutaneous localizations,Whatever the tumour Histological origin.ECT is based on the local delivery of electric pulses that permeablize the cell membrane,allowing non-permeant or low-permeant anticancer drugs to enter the cell,thus magnifying their cytotoxicity by orders of magnitude . Treatment is safe very well tolerated by the patients, and efficacy is very high. With further technological development of the electrodes,internal tumours will also be accessible to treatment with ECT.
