  1. Pulmonary function parameters, measured one day before and about 9 months after WLL; mild restrictive impairment is present, with a slight improvement after the procedure. VC, vital capacity; FRC, functional residual capacity; RV, residual volume; TLC, total lung capacity; FEV1, forced expiratory volume in 1 second.
