    Post -FDA Approval Clinical Trial Evaluating Bronchial Thermoplasty in Severe Persistent Asthma [LCID Study Number: 2011-063] The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness, safety and side effects of bronchial thermoplasty (which is performed with the Alair System) for patients with severe persistent asthma. Bronchial thermoplasty is a procedure that applies mild heat to the airway wall that is designed to reduce the amount of airway smooth muscle. The procedure reduces the ability of the airway walls to contract and narrow during an asthma attack. Principal Investigator(s):
