||bronchial thermoplasty system|
||Bronchial thermoplasty systems are intended for the treatment of severe persistent asthma in patients whose asthma is not well controlled with inhaled corticosteroids and long acting beta agonists to reduce the effects of their asthma by using thermal radiofrequency energy to ablate smooth muscle tissue in the patient's airways.
||Bronchial thermoplasty systems are composed of a catheter with an electrode that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the airways, as well as an controller unit that generates RF energy and controls the parameters of delivery.
||Bronchial thermoplasty systems use radiofrequency (RF) energy to ablate smooth muscle tissue in the airways.
||Bronchial thermoplasty systems target the airways of the lung and the smooth muscle that lines the airway lumen.
