Evidence-based recommendations on endobronchial valve insertion to reduce lung volume in emphysema. This involves placing small one-way valves in some airways leading to damaged parts of the lungs.

This guidance replaces NICE interventional procedures guidance on insertion of endobronchial valves for lung volume reduction in emphysema (IPG465).

Next review: this guidance will be reviewed if there is new evidence or safety concerns.
