  • Castellví Fernández, Quim; Banús Cobo, Jaume; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (Springer, 2015)
    Ablative techniques based on irreversible elec-troporation (IRE) have emerged as an effective cancer thera-py. In these treatments electrical pulses are delivered in order to induce irrecoverable damage to the cell membranes, ...
  • Sarnago, Héctor; Lucía, Óscar; Naval, Alejandro; Burdío, José Miguel; Castellví Fernández, Quim; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Electroporation is an effective technique based on applying an electric field to cells, commonly used to increase the effectivity of drug and gene delivery. When the applied electric field is ...
  • Castellví Fernández, Quim; Mercadal Cavaller, Borja; Moll, Xavier; Fondevila, Dolors; Andaluz, Anna; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2018)
    Electroporation based treatments typically consist in applying high voltage dc pulses. As an undesired side effect, these dc pulses cause electrical stimulation of excitable tissues such as motor nerves. In the present in ...
  • Trujillo Guillén, Macarena; Castellví Fernández, Quim; Burdío Pinilla, Fernando; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974-; Andaluz, Anna; Sanchez Velazquez Patricia; Berjano, Enrique J. (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2013)
    Purpose: To assess the feasibility of a hybrid ablative technique based on applying electroporation (EP) pulses just before conducting radiofrequency ablation (RFA). The rationale was that the EP-induced reduction in blood ...

    Background. Spread hepatic tumours are not suitable for treatment either by surgery or conventional ablation methods. The aim of this study was to evaluate feasibility and safety of selectively increasing the healthy ...
  • Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974-; Becerra-Fajardo, Laura; Castellví Fernández, Quim (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2015)
    Objective. It is possible to develop implantable microstimulators whose actuation principle is based on rectification of high frequency (HF) current bursts supplied through skin electrodes. This has been demonstrated ...

    Irreversible electroporation is a fast-growing liver ablation technique. Although safety has been well documented in small ablations, our aim is to assess its safety and feasibility when a large portion of liver is ablated. ...

    Irreversible electroporation (IRE) has recently gained in popularity as an ablative technique, however little is known about its oncological long-term outcomes. To determine the long-time survival of animals treated with ...
  • Castellví Fernández, Quim (Société de l'électricité, de l'électronique et des technologies de l'information et de la communication (SEE), 2014)
    Les mesures de bio-impédance sont utilisées pour déterminer les propriétés et la physiologie des tissus biologiques. Par ailleurs, le phénomène d'électroporation provoque une variation dans les propriétés électriques du ...
  • Castellví Fernández, Quim; Sánchez-Velázquez, Patricia; Moll, Xavier; Berjano, Enrique J.; Andaluz, Anna; Burdío Pinilla, Fernando; Bijnens, Bart; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (Wiley, 2018)
    Metastases in the liver frequently grow as scattered tumor nodules which neither can be removed by surgical resection nor focally ablated. Previously, we have proposed a novel technique based on irreversible electroporation ...
  • Castellví Fernández, Quim (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2017-09-18)
    Most physical ablation modalities for cancer treatment are focal and are based on thermal damage. Despite their regular clinical use as an alternative to surgical resection, their thermal principle of operation entails ...
  • Castellví Fernández, Quim; Sánchez-Velázquez, Joan; Berjano, Enrique J.; Burdío Pinilla, Fernando; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (Springer, 2015)
    Spread tumors in liver are not suitable to be treated with local treatments, such as conventional surgery or radiofrequency ablation, thus entailing a poor prognosis. Electroporation-based therapies imply the delivery of ...
  • Castellví Fernández, Quim; Ginestà, Mireia M.; Capellá, Gabriel; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (Elsevier, 2015)
    Delivery of the so-called Tumor Treatment Fields (TTFields) has been proposed as a cancer/ntherapy. These are low magnitude alternating electric fields at frequencies from 100 to 300 kHz/nwhich are applied continuously in ...
