Targeted Lung Denervation (TLD) Therapy will be a safe method to ablate the airway nerve trunks that travel parallel to and outside of the main bronchi and into the lungs to achieve targeted lung denervation and potentially improve breathing and quality of life for patients suffering from COPD.

Use of the IPS System will be technically feasible in accessing the target treatment location and delivering RF energy to the target treatment location.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary Safety Endpoint [ Time Frame: 365 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety will be evaluated as freedom from documented and sustained worsening of COPD directly attributable to the investigational device or procedure.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Performance [ Time Frame: 365 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Performance will be evaluated as the ability of the IPS System to access the target treatment area and deliver RF energy to the target treatment site at the time of the procedure, as well as confirmation of clinical evidence of successful lung denervation.

Enrollment: 15
Study Start Date: October 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2016
Primary Completion Date: May 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment
Targeted Lung Denervation Therapy (TLD Therapy)
