Abstract

The paper presents the realization of a prototype of a flexible grid electrode suitable to treat large surface by means of electrochemotherapy. The device has been primarily designed in order to treat breast cancer recurrences appear on chest wall. This case the flexibility of the support allows the adaptability to the surface. In practice, this kind of device can allow the reduction of the treatment time that is limited by the biodisponibility of the drug (i.e. 20 min). The first prototype of the presented device has been preliminary tested in suitable phantoms in order to verify the reliability of electroporation.
