RePneu® Coils are small, shape-memory Nitinol implants, designed to gather and compress diseased tissue, re-tension the diseased airway network and mechanically increase the elastic recoil in the emphysematous lung. The re-tensioning effects of the RePneu Coil may also tether small airways open, helping to prevent airway collapse during exhalation. Airway tethering is a key benefit designed to prevent air trapping and hyperinflation, and is a fundamental and exclusive element of the Coil’s design.
