Evaluation of emphysema distribution with quantitative computed tomography (qCT) prior to endoscopic lung volume reduction (ELVR) is recommended. The aim of this study was to determine which of the commonly assessed qCT parameters prior to endoscopic lung volume reduction (ELVR) best predicts outcome of treatment.

The National Emphysema Treatment Trial (NETT) showed a clear survival and quality of life benefit for patients selected for lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS). However, long-term outcomes following ...
Bronchoscopic lung volume reduction (BLVR) using valves and coils has been approved for use since 2003 and 2010, respectively.
Endobronchial coils are an additional treatment option for lung volume reduction in patients with severe emphysema. Patient selection should be focused on patients with severe emphysema on optimal med...
To investigate the association between target volume margins and clinical outcomes for patients with inoperable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with concurrent chemoradiation therapy.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension after arterial switch operation for transposition of the great arteries is rare. Lung transplantation can be the last option in cases of failed medical therapy. We repo...
Patients with heterogenous emphysema benefits from endoscopic lung volume reduction. Until now the technique is limited to one lobe. In case of collateral ventilation patients show no impr...
Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) has been advanced as a therapy to significantly improve quality of life in patients with COPD, but to date no controlled studies have evaluated the imp...
The study is designed as a prospective, nonrandomized, exploratory, single center, first-in-man study. The objective of this study is to evaluate its safety and feasibility of the Cinenses...
Endoscopic lung volume reduction coil treatment is a treatment option for selected patients with severe emphysema. In the advanced stages, emphysema may lead to chronic hypercapnic respira...
The main objectives of this study are to see if a type of lung surgery, known as lung reduction surgery, in addition to standard medical treatment improves the quality of life, lung functi...
The lung volume at which the dependent lung zones cease to ventilate presumably as a result of airway closure.
The capability of the LUNGS to distend under pressure as measured by pulmonary volume change per unit pressure change. While not a complete description of the pressure-volume properties of the lung, it is nevertheless useful in practice as a measure of the comparative stiffness of the lung. (From Best & Taylor's Physiological Basis of Medical Practice, 12th ed, p562)
The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.
An abnormality in lung development that is characterized by a multicystic mass resulting from an adenomatous overgrowth of the terminal BRONCHIOLES with a consequent reduction of PULMONARY ALVEOLI. This anomaly is classified into three types by the cyst size.
The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).

COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
