Patricia McCall said she feels “100 times better” after the procedure
One of the first patients in Scotland to receive a new lung valve has spoken of the huge improvement in her quality of life. Patricia McCall had tiny valves inserted in her lungs to treat her emphysema. The procedure is an alternative to radical surgery in which diseased parts of the lungs are cut away.
Ms McCall was treated at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Clydebank as part of a clinical trial. The hospital is the first in Scotland to fit the valves. The valves are made from titanium and silicone and could be suitable for up to a third of emphysema patients.
