The NanoKnife is a relatively new non-thermal tumor ablation tool. It is based on the creation of nanoscale defects in the cell membrane lasting long enough to induce cell death.Although considered a minimally invasive technique, side effects are still possible.We describe a patient who had benign electrocardiography (ECG) changes in the form of tall T-waves with no apparent hemodynamic consequence.The patient also had regular right diaphragmatic contractions that slightly affected ventilatory curves during positive pressure ventilation, without clinical implications.Irreversible electroporation represents a new method for tumor ablation. It appears to be safe and promising, especially with the application of advanced ECG-synchronizing devices. This example shows that we should be careful when implementing new techniques and that we should add our experiences to a global database to enhance the learning process...
