Finally, some good news for our many patients who have chronic eustachian tube dysfunction. The eustachian tube is a structure which connects the space behind the ear drum to the back of the nose called the nasopharynx. The eustachian tube is normally closed, but is actively opened by the certain muscles used during swallowing, yawning, and even chewing gum! This is the pop you feel when on an airplane or high elevation. The purpose of the eustachian tube is to help regulate the internal air pressure of the middle ear. When the eustachian tube doesn’t function well the ear can feel clogged or stuffed up and sometimes collects fluids which won’t clear. The problem can be successfully corrected using Balloon Dilation of the Eustachian Tube, which uses the same type of instrument used with balloon sinuplasty to safely dilate the eustachian tube entirely through the nose.
