|Official Title:||Response to Bronchodilation With Tiotropium Plus Salbutamol Correlates With Radiologic Morphology of the Lung in COPD of the Emphysematous Phenotype|
|Study Start Date :||November 2009|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||December 2013|
Patients with severe heterogeneous emphysema selected as potential candidtes for lung volume reduction surgery.
Bronchodilators employed for the study include albuterol 200µg and tiotropium bromide 18 µg administered by puffs following a first spirometry and plethysmography performed after a washout period of 48h from all bronchodilators and subsequently repeated within 30 min after bronchodilators administration.
Administration of both albuterol and tiotropium bromide after a 48h period of washout from all bronchodilators, followed by spirometry and plethysmography
- post-bronchodilator FEV1 change [ Time Frame: 1 h ]Assessed by spirometry carried out before and after administration of bronchodilators
- post-bronchodilator change in FVC [ Time Frame: 1h ]Assessed by spirometry carried out before and after administration of bronchodilators
