Bronchoscopic treatment is applied to patients with narrowing of the airways and thickening of goblet cells due to chronic bronchitis caused by tobacco exposure. Using a bronchoscope inserted through an intubation tube, a procedure called desquamation is performed with COPD balloons to remove goblet cells from the inner layer of all accessible respiratory pathways, primarily targeting the airways ranging from 8 to 3 mm in diameter. COPD balloons, selected according to the diameter of the bronchi, are used for this procedure.

These balloons, inflated and deflated with adjustable pressure and frequency using an electronic pump, scrape the thickened inner layer of the bronchi to restore it to its original thickness. The balloon, made of polyisoprene and covered with a plain weave of thermoplastic polystyrene, transforms the thickened goblet cell layer, which causes mucus production in the airway, into a foamy liquid, allowing the bronchus to regain its original width. The foamy goblet cell layer is then aspirated through the bronchoscope channel and expelled. As a result of the COPD balloon treatment, all bronchi accessible with the bronchoscope in both lungs are relieved of chronic bronchitis caused by smoking and the altered bronchial epithelium layer.
