PneumRx is conducting an IDE clinical study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a medical device for patients with emphysema: the RePneu® (say ‘RENEW’) Coil System. Coils are placed in the airways of the lung and work by gathering and compressing diseased portions of the lung, helping small airways stay open, so that breathing becomes easier and healthier parts of the lung can function more efficiently.
Thousands of patients have been successfully treated in European clinical studies and routine clinical practice. Patients treated with RePneu Coils may experience an improved ability to exercise, lung function and quality of life. Up to 315 patients will participate in the RENEW Study, conducted in over 25 medical centers across North America, with a smaller number of sites in Europe.
