Brief description of study

A Prospective, Randomized, Controlled Multicenter Clinical Study to Evaluate the Safety and Effectiveness of the IBV® Valve System for the Single Lobe Treatment of Severe Emphysema

Detailed Study Description

This is a multicenter, prospective, randomized, controlled study designed to evaluate improvement of lung function after treatment with the IBV Valve System as compared to medical management in the control group. The control group will be evaluated in the same manner as the treatment group.

The IBV Valve is a small, umbrella-shaped, one-way valve that is placed inside the airways of one lung. It is used to redirect air from the less healthy to the more healthy parts of the lung. This helps to reduce over-inflation and may improve overall lung function and quality of life for people living with emphysema.
