Endobronchial Valve Treatment
Endobronchial valve therapy with the Spiration® Valve System offers a new, minimally-invasive treatment option for severe emphysema patients.
The Spiration Valve is an umbrella-shaped device that is placed in targeted airways of the lung during a short bronchoscopic procedure. Once in place, the Spiration Valve redirects air from diseased parts of the lung to healthier parts, allowing the healthier lung tissue to expand and function more effectively. With a potential reduction in lung volume, a patient may be able to breathe more easily and experience improvement in their quality of life.1
