Hello everyone,

I was reading around today about lung volume reduction surgery and came across a newer treatment it seems called lung volume reduction coil surgery. In this surgery, it seems in this new surgery permanent coils are placed into the lung to help the lungs recoil and improving the elasticity of the lungs.

Here is a page on Cleveland clinic that I found while researching: https://health.clevelandclinic.org/tiny-coils-help-copd-patients-to-breathe-easier/ 

You can see a video about here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIa2Ey5ag7E

Does anyone know about this treatment or any information?

I have heard of it only from what was shared here on Carenity some time ago.
