Dr. Solomon (an interventional radiologist) at Memorial Sloan Kettering did an Irreversible electroporation (nonthermal ablative technology that uses high-voltage, low-energy DC current pulses to induce cell death) on a tumor in my liver that was too close to the portal vein to attempt standard ablation. (tumors near a large vein cannot be heated to high enough temperatures to kill the cancer cells without damaging the vein. In my case, the IRE worked and the tumor was eradicated...allowing the resection of the tumors in other lobes of my liver. Perhaps this is a possibility for you? Have you considered an HAI pump?
