A prospective, multicenter, registry of patients undergoing balloon dilation of the Eustachian tubes (ET).


This is a prospective, multicenter, single-arm, postmarket registry enrolling up to 300 participants who are planning to undergo balloon dilation of the Eustachian tubes for treatment of chronic/persistent Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD). Procedural information will be collect as well as efficacy and safety data through 6 months post procedure.

Efficacy of a silicone plug for patulous eustachian tube: A prospective, multicenter case series.

To report the efficacy and safety of transtympanic plugging of the eustachian tube (ET) using a silicone plug (Kobayashi plug) for chronic patulous ET (PET).

Evaluation of the Parameter "Mean Impedance" for Representing Eustachian tube Functions During Pressure Increase and Decrease in Pressure Chamber Measurements.

The hypothesis of the study is that the mean impedance (MI) during compression and decompression provides additional information of the Eustachian tube (ET) function.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A short muscle that arises from the pharyngotympanic tube (EUSTACHIAN TUBE) and inserts into the handle of the MALLEUS. This muscle pulls the handle medially thus controlling the tension and movement of TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.

Inflammation of the MIDDLE EAR including the AUDITORY OSSICLES and the EUSTACHIAN TUBE.

A narrow passageway that connects the upper part of the throat to the TYMPANIC CAVITY.

Injury following pressure changes; includes injury to the eustachian tube, ear drum, lung and stomach.

Discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through the external auditory meatus or through the eustachian tube into the nasopharynx. This is usually associated with CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE involving the TEMPORAL BONE;), NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; or other conditions, but may rarely occur spontaneously.
