Spotted by a friend with COPD from an article in the Maily Dale which could help in the not too distant future maybe?
'Holaira is developing a catheter-based system to address chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) by treating the overactive airway nerves in a procedure called Targeted Lung Denervation (TLD). A targeted anticholinergic procedure, TLD, opens obstructed airways to improve breathing and has the potential to provide lasting whole lung improvement. Targeted Lung Denervation is currently under clinical investigation for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and is not yet commercially available.'
