Abstract

As electroporation therapies become more widely used in the cardiac ablation space, there is a critical need to study the potential effects on surrounding tissues: collateral damage. Here we explored methods to study the effects applying electroporative energies on vascular smooth muscle: i.e., loss of vascular function when exposed to energies needed to induce irreversibly electroporative therapy to the myocardium.
