Two-million people suffer with Emphysema in the United States.

It's a debilitating disease that causes irreversible damage to the lungs, making it hard to breathe for patients and difficult to engage in normal activities.

Patients in the Renew Study receive two sets of coils placed four months apart.  

The multi-center study is currently enrolling patients all over the country.
