The objective of this study is to demonstrate that balloon dilation of the Eustachian tubes can be done successfully for treatment of chronic dilatory Eustachian tube dysfunction under local anesthesia with acceptable patient discomfort levels.
This study is a prospective, non-significant risk, multi-center trial of patients with Eustachian tube dysfunction who are refractory to medical management. Patients will undergo balloon dilation of the Eustachian tubes in the office under local anesthesia. We will assess assess the peri-procedural and post-procedure pain levels, and determine the proportion of subjects experiencing normalization of tympanometry and improvement in quality of of life at 6 weeks, 12 weeks, and 52 weeks post-treatment.
