InterVapor is designed to target the hyperinflation that impacts patients with emphysema. It provides non-surgical lung volume reduction designed to create more breathing space and better lung function which offers many advantages to improve the lives of patients. This product provides a natural healing approach which uses your body’s natural healing process for lung volume reduction. It only uses heated water vapor which guarantee patients that there will be no permanent implants left in their lung tissues. It can be used as a personalized therapy which is customized for each patient, based on their unique anatomy and their lung health. This product is a minimally invasive bronchoscopic procedure in which heated water vapor is delivered to emphysematous lung tissue. The vapor sets into motion a fibrosis (scarring) and healing process, which causes a permanent reduction of diseased lung tissue. This volume reduction leads to improvements in the flow of air in and out of the lungs, which results in increased space in the chest cavity for healthy lung regions to function, enabling more efficient breathing.
