SPIRATION VALVE SYSTEM
TREATMENT OF SEVERE EMPHYSEMA
The Spiration® Valve System is an innovative endobronchial valve therapy for bronchoscopic lung volume reduction (BLVR) that improves lung function, reduces shortness of breath, and restores quality of life for patients suffering from severe emphysema.1
MANAGEMENT OF PROLONGED AIRLEAKS
The Spiration Valve System is the only FDA approved device indicated to manage post-surgical prolonged air leaks (PALs) following lobectomy, segmentectomy and Lung Volume Reduction Surgery (LVRS), under the Humanitarian Device Exemption. This minimally invasive endobronchial valve therapy can favorably affect the recovery of patients and ultimately shorten their hospital length of stay.2
