Uptake Medical Receives CE Mark for InterVapor - Endoscopic Lung Volume Reduction for Treatment of Severe Emphysema - and Announces Positive Clinical Results
Date:9/26/2011

rVapor procedure have significant physiologic improvements (including decreased hyperinflation and gas trapping) as well as clinical improvements (reduced breathlessness and improved exercise capacity). All treatments were performed successfully without intra-procedural complications. Adverse events related to treatment included a temporary increase in respiratory symptoms in some patients, which generally resolved with standard medical management.

Felix Herth, MD, Chief, Department of Pulmonary Medicine, Thoraxklinik Heidelberg and primary investigator for the VAPOR study, is enthusiastic about the InterVapor data.

A procedure that shows an 83 percent improvement when looking at several endpoints should provide new optimism for patients who are living with emphysema."

InterVapor is a minimally invasive procedure which treats hyperinflated parts of the lungs with heated water vapor. InterVapor triggers the body's natural healing process, gradually reducing the treated portion of the lungs and increasing the ability to breathe more fully.
