Bronchoscopic lung volume reduction (BLVR) with endobronchial valves (EBV) is a guideline-based, FDA-approved standard of care treatment option for patients with severe emphysema. Over 25,000 patients have been treated globally with this minimally invasive therapy, clinically proven to improve lung function, exercise capacity, and quality of life.
