Chartis Collateral Ventilation Measurement: Conscious Sedation Versus General Anesthesia

Rationale: The Chartis ( Pulmonx, CA, USA) measurement system is a tool to assess interlobar collateral ventilation during bronchoscopy. Assessing collateral ventilation is important when you intend to treat a patient with endobronchial valves. Chartis measurement of collateral ventilation can be performed under both conscious sedation as well as general ...

SurgiQuest AirSeal in Robotic Partial Nephrectomy - (TARPAN Study)

A prospective, randomized, controlled multi-center clinical Study designed to evaluate Physician Preference related to the use of the SurgiQuest AirSealTM Insufflation System (AIS) vs. Conventional Insufflation Systems (CIS) for the Management of pneumoperitoneum during Robotic Partial Nephrectomy. Subjects will be randomized in a 1:1:1 treatment device to control ratio into ...

LVR in Severe Emphysema Using Bronchoscopic Autologous Blood Instillation in Combination With Intra-bronchial Valves

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an umbrella term encompassing two entities causing progressive and ultimately disabling breathlessness. Emphysema is a process destructive of the airspaces distal to the terminal bronchioles, with loss of gas exchange tissue, of elastic recoil and of circumferential tethering of the small airways leading to ...

Phase N/A

Activity Monitor Use in COPD Patients Undergoing Rehabilitation

The research proposal has been developed in conjunction with the Respiratory Physicians and Physiotherapy team who deliver the pulmonary Rehabilitation sessions. The investigators want to address if providing patients with monitors to record activity levels and then giving feedback on activity level data enhances the effect of the standard pulmonary ...

Clinical Study to Evaluate the Exercise Capacity in Patients With Severe Emphysema Treated With Coils

The study plans to include patients with severe emphysema candidates to go through eLVR with coils that fulfill all inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria. Patients with both homogeneous and heterogeneous emphysema will be included. The main study intervention is the performance of a cyclo ergometry (not included ...

Genetics of the Combined Pulmonary Fibrosis and Emphysema Syndrome

The combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema syndrome (CPFE) individualized by our group in 2005 is characterized by an often severe dyspnea, almost exclusive male predominance, and often major, profound impairment of gas exchange contrasting with preserved lung volumes and absence of airflow obstruction, and a high risk of pre-capillary pulmonary ...

Unilateral Versus Bilateral Endoscopic Lung Volume Reduction A Comparative Case Study

Patient enrolment and data acquisition is to be carried out on a prospective basis. It is planned to enrol a total of 20 patients with bilateral heterogeneous pulmonary emphysema. All patients will undergo treatment at one study centre in Heidelberg. Patients will be considered for both unilateral and bilateral treatment ...
