Extract

Introduction: Endobronchial coils for treatment of severe emphysema have been demonstrated in two randomized, controlled trials to improve quality of life, exercise tolerance, and lung function in bilaterally treated patients. In Switzerland, patients undergoing coil treatment have been followed in a post-market Registry; preliminary results are presented here.

Methods: 5 centres enrolled 64 patients between October 2013 and November 2016. Patients were diagnosed with bilateral, severe, symptomatic emphysema, were on optimal medical therapy, and had completed pulmonary rehabilitation (∼65%) and smoking cessation (∼75%) prior to consenting to treatment. Patients underwent high resolution CT scanning to assess emphysema distribution, exclude suspicious findings, radiographically severe bronchiectasis, and severe bullous disease.
