Uptake Medical Announces First Commercial Use of InterVapor for Patients With Severe Emphysema
Date:11/29/2011

TUSTIN, Calif., Nov. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Uptake Medical® today announced the first commercial use of the InterVapor™ System for endoscopic lung volume reduction in a patient with severe emphysema. The patient successfully underwent treatment with InterVapor, the first endoscopic lung volume reduction system for the treatment of severe emphysema that uses the body's natural healing processes without leaving foreign materials in the lung.

InterVapor is a non-surgical procedure which treats hyperinflated parts of the lungs with heated water vapor.
