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 ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy and Safety of Alpha1-Proteinase Inhibitor (Human) Modified Process (Alpha-1 MP) in Subjects With Pulmonary Emphysema Due to Alpha1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD)

This is a multi-center, randomized, placebo-controlled, double blind clinical study to assess the efficacy and safety of two separate dose regimens of Alpha-1 MP versus placebo for 156 weeks (i.e., 3 years) using computed tomography (CT) of the lungs as the main measure of efficacy. The two Alpha-1 MP doses ...

The Effect of Physical Activity Promotion on Short and Long-term Outcomes in COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major cause of global morbidity and is projected to become the third leading cause of death in the world by 2020. In Veterans, the prevalence is high; in VISN1 in FY 2012, 9% of outpatient Veterans had the ICD-9 diagnosis of COPD. In ...

Advancing Symptom Alleviation With Palliative Treatment

Chronic heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have commonalities that make them ideal for early palliative care provided alongside disease-specific treatments. Quality of life is reduced in both illnesses because, despite disease-specific treatments, the same symptoms (e.g., shortness of breath, fatigue) often persist in CHF and COPD. ...

Computed Tomography Assessment of Regional Ventilation (CURVE)

CT scans during breathing in and breathing out (CTPVe) can assess regional airflow within the lung, using newly developed software as described by Aliverti et al. This provides information about the function of each part of the lung. The investigators aim to assess the feasibility of a larger trial using ...

A Prospective Multicenter Clinical Study to Evaluate the Safety and Effectiveness of the OL-BF-001 for Severe Emphysema

This is a multicenter,single-arm,open-label study designed to evaluate improvement of lung function and safety after treatment with OL-BF-001 for severe emphysema. OL-BF-001 consists of a bronchial valve, deployment catheter, loader and airway sizing kit. A bronchial valve is a small, umbrella-shaped, one-way valve that is placed inside the airways of ...

Phase N/A

Endoscopic Lung Volume Reduction Coil Treatment in Patients With Chronic Hypercapnic Respiratory Failure

Endoscopic lung volume reduction coil treatment is a treatment option for selected patients with severe emphysema. In the advanced stages, emphysema may lead to chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure. In this observational study the safety and efficacy of endoscopic lung volume reduction coil treatment in patients with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure ...

Phase N/A

Changes in Lung Physiology and Cardiac Performance in Patients With Emphysema Post Bilateral RePneu Coil Treatment

The objective of this post-marketing study is to advance the understanding of the mechanism of action of the CE marked RePneu Coil by observing changes in lung physiology and cardiac performance in patients with emphysema treated with the RePneu Coils, when used as intended.

Phase N/A

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 ...

COPD Patient-Powered Research Network

The COPD Patient-Powered Research Network (COPD PPRN) is a patient research registry with the goal of enrolling 75,000 or more COPD patients and those at risk who are willing to share their heath information over several years and participate in research. The COPD PPRN has built an online platform to ...
