Interventional Pulmonology Products

Enabling better breathing and improving quality of life. The Zephyr® valve is a one-way valve that blocks airflow to the diseased region of the lung to allow healthy regions to expand and function more efficiently.

Simple Implant Procedure

  • Clear mechanism of action
  • Can be easily removed, if needed

Effective and Predictable Outcomes – A Decade of Real-Life Experience

  • The broadest clinical experience of any minimally invasive emphysema treatment
  • Decade of clinical experience with more than 25,000 valves implanted
  • Over 110 publications documenting the safety, efficacy and long-term survival benefits for patients treated with severe emphysema1

Sustained and Meaningful Patient Benefits

Patients experience a significant improvement in lung function, exercise tolerance, and quality of life, as well as long-term survival benefits

  • Significantly improved FEV1 and sustained functional outcomes1,2,3,4,5
  • Clinically significant improvement in exercise tolerance5
  • Long-term survival benefit through five years1,2

How It Works

Image of endobronchial valves
Using a standard bronchoscope, Zephyr valves are delivered to target airways using a flexible delivery catheter
Image of one-way valve

Once implanted, the one-way valve prevents airflow into the diseased region, while allowing trapped air and fluids to escape

Reducing the volume of the diseased region may allow healthier regions to expand and function more efficiently

 

The Zephyr® endobronchial delivery catheter enables efficient and controlled delivery of the Zephyr valve

  • Proper valve sizing: The diameter gauges allow for a quick visual measurement of the bronchial diameter
  • Accurate positioning: A depth marker assists in positioning the catheter prior to valve deployment placement
  • Controlled delivery: An actuator lever facilitates precise deployment of the valve
