The Confidence You Need
For The Outcomes You Want.

  • Target lobe will have severe, highly heterogeneous emphysema with complete fissures. 1,2,3

  • Multiple valves are placed to occlude all the airways leading to the targeted lobe and enable atelectasis or significant lobar reduction.

  • Significant lobar reduction can relieve hyperinflation, enable healthier tissue to expand, and make breathing easier. 3
 

A Minimally Invasive Treatment for Emphysema

The Spiration Valve procedure is considered minimally invasive and can be performed through a flexible bronchoscope.

Studies suggest that an optimal treatment approach for bronchial valve treatment may involve complete occlusion of a single lobe, and careful selection of appropriate patients with complete fissures and high heterogeneity using High Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) and perfusion scan analysis.1,2,3  CLICK HERE to learn more about selecting appropriate patients that may benefit from the Spiration Valve System.

 

Spiration Valve Procedure

Patient Selection & Treatment Approach

  • Unilateral intrabronchial valve placement with complete occlusion appears superior to bilateral partial occlusion3

  • Target lobe will have severe, highly heterogenous emphysema with complete fissures1,2,3

 

Balloon Calibration 

Prior to the procedure, a sizing balloon is calibrated to enable precise measurement of the airways.

Airway Sizing

The calibrated balloon is used to determine the appropriate valve size for placement.

Valve Placement

Multiple valves are placed to occlude all the airways leading to the targeted lobe and enable atelectasis or significant lobar reduction.

Lobar Volume Reduction

Significant lobar reduction can relive hyperinflation, enable healthier tissue to expand, and make breathing easier.3

 

 

 

 

...to 0% migration or expectoration 2,4,5
for effective lobar occlusion

Complete occlusion is a prerequisite for significant volume reduction, which correlates with improvement in clinical outcomes.6

  • FEV1 was improved by 21.4% at 90 days, with statistically significant differences also seen across IVC, RV, RV/TLC, 6MWD, mMRC, SGRQ, BODE and ADO.6

  • 99% technical success.2,4

  • Now available in 9mm size for large airways.
