Bronchial Thermoplasty
Offered at McLaren Port Huron

Bronchial thermoplasty is a treatment for adult patients with chronic severe asthma. It is an outpatient procedure that helps to reduce the smooth muscle mass in the airways through delivery of controlled thermal (heat) energy to the airway walls. The thermal energy is delivered to the airway walls over a series of 3 bronchoscopies. Bronchial thermoplasty (BT) is an FDA-approved procedure for the treatment of asthma, approved in 2010 for use in people 18 years or older with severe asthma whose symptoms are not well controlled with medication or inhalers.

Benefits of Bronchial Thermoplasty

In clinical trials, BT has been shown to improve asthma-related quality of life in 79% of people who received treatment. People treated with BT also had:

  • 84% fewer asthma-related emergency room visits
  • 66% fewer days lost from work, school, and other activities due to asthma symptoms
  • 32% fewer severe asthma attacks.

How Bronchial Thermoplasty Works

BT helps to reduce the smooth muscle mass in the airways through delivery of controlled thermal (heat) energy to the airway walls. The thermal energy is delivered to the airway walls over a series of 3 bronchoscopies.
