This was obvious at 8 months of age and more pronounced at 12 months 4 months of age. There was hook improvement in myelination in the centrum semiovale and pyramidal tracts at 2 years 9 months of age, but there is no corresponding low transmission in the white matter , typical of normal development, on T2-weighted imaging. Myelination remained lacking, as time passes, in the periphery of the frontal, occipital, and temporal lobes. In contrast, the cerebellum, brainstem, and thalami were normal with regard to the MRI signal essentially, configuration, and volume. The putamen and globus pallidus were smaller than the normal size slightly. On MRI performed when the patient was 24 months 9 months of age, we didn’t observe focal lesions in the cortical gray matter, disturbance in circulation of the cerebrospinal liquid, pathologic signal in the basal ganglia, or diffusion abnormalities.Patent # 7 7,500,971, entitled Devices, Systems and Methods for Treating Disorders of the Hearing, Nose and Throat, to the company. This patent and Acclarent’s previously 7,462,175 patent are directed to options for dealing with a paranasal sinus ostium, such as the maxillary sinus ostium, either through the nostril or various other routes. The patented strategies include advancing a balloon through helpful information and using the balloon to dilate a paranasal sinus ostium. In addition to securing protection for this early invention, we believe this essential patent underscores Acclarent’s strength in intellectual property and deepens the cornerstone of our patent portfolio for Balloon Sinuplasty, states Acclarent CEO, Bill Facteau.
