Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) is a treatment option for patients with severe emphysema. A multicentre randomised trial (NETT) found, that LVRS reduced symptoms from emphysema, and in selected patients with heterogen-ous emphysema it improved survival. Since NETT was performed, other studies have demonstrated positive outcomes, both symptomatic and for survival in previously classified high-risk patients. Post-operative mortality after LVRS is now negligible, which is often credited to minimally invasive techniques, greater experience with the patient group and improved operative equipment.
