Acclarent, Inc. Introduces Two New Innovations for Minimally-Invasive Sinus Surgery during AAO - Head and Neck Surgery Conference

New tools build upon company's minimally-invasive Balloon Sinuplasty Platform to improve visualization capabilities during sinus surgery for the treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis.

BOSTON, Sept. 27 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Acclarent, Inc., a leader in minimally-invasive sinus surgery, today announced the introduction of two new technologies designed to improve visualization during sinus surgery -- The Acclarent Cyclops™ Multi-Angle Endoscope and the Relieva Luma Sentry™ Sinus Illumination System. The Relieva Luma Sentry™ Sinus Illumination System builds upon Acclarent's 510k cleared Relieva Luma® Technology. The Acclarent Cyclops™ Multi-Angle Endoscope is CE Marked and currently pending 510k clearance. These products, which are the latest additions to the company's minimally-invasive Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology Platform, will be featured at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Otolaryngology -- Head and Neck Surgery, September 26-29 in Boston.

The Acclarent Cyclops™ Multi-Angle Endoscope offers an unlimited field of vision to examine every angle with one scope. The Acclarent Cyclops™ Multi-Angle Endoscope's precise engineering and optically-ground, hand-polished sapphire lens enable the surgeon to pan up to 90-degrees and freely rotate the field of view. This allows the surgeon to directly visualize the natural opening of the sinuses, even the maxillary.

The Relieva Luma Sentry™ Sinus Illumination System safely navigates tortuous sinus anatomy and easily confirms sinus access. The Relieva Luma Sentry™ Sinus Illumination System also enables ENT surgeons to efficiently exchange instruments without losing sinus access. Relieva Luma Sentry™ Sinus Illumination System is the next generation in transcutaneous illumination providing surgeons with confident direct visual confirmation of sinus access with maximum control.

Since 2005, more than 120,000 patients have been treated with Balloon Sinuplasty™ Technology in operating rooms and office settings.
