Objective A systematic review and meta-analysis of the evidence on balloon Eustachian tuboplasty (BET) as a treatment modality for Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD). We followed the PRISMA guideline and registered with PROSPERO No. CRD42014009461. Data Sources We searched 12 databases including PubMed and Embase from January 1, 2010, to April 7, 2014, for studies of BET. Endpoints: change in symptoms, middle ear pathology, eardrum status, Eustachian tube function tests, hearing, adverse events…

Outcome of Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation in Children: A Systematic Review.
OBJECTIVE Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) is a chronic entity that has been historically managed with adenoidectomy and ventilation tube insertion. Recently, balloon dilation of the eustachian tube
Laser Eustachian Tuboplasty for Eustachian Tube Dysfunction: a case series review
TLDR
While LETP is safe, its use should remain limited to research in adults, and future trials should be case controlled, and detail pre- and post-operative tympanometry, otoscopy findings, subjective symptoms, and pure tone audiometry.
A Systematic Literature Review of the Safety and Efficacy of Eustachian Balloon Tuboplasty in Patients with Chronic Eustachian Tube Dysfunction
TLDR
Based on the literature review the procedure was found to be effective in alleviating symptoms in adult and pediatric patients immediately postoperatively and long term, up to 5 years.
Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation: Emerging Practice Patterns for a Novel Procedure
TLDR
Eustachian tube balloon dilation is a novel technique for the treatment of chronic ETD, and its role continues to evolve and develop.
Fluoroscopy-guided balloon dilation in patients with Eustachian tube dysfunction
TLDR
Fluoroscopy-guided balloon dilation seems to be technically feasible and safe in the treatment of ET dysfunction and without general anaesthesia was well-tolerated in all patients.

TLDR
This panel reached consensus on several statements that clarify diagnosis and perioperative management of OETD and may provide helpful information for the otolaryngologist considering the use of BDET for the management of patients with OETd.

TLDR
The Bielefelder Balloon dilatation is a new and safe treatment for chronic tube dysfunction, which had a significant positive influence on the postoperative quality of life of the patient cohort.
Clinical evaluation of balloon dilation Eustachian tuboplasty in the Eustachian tube dysfunction
TLDR
Although patients revealed a significant improvement of ET score, longer long-term studies are necessary to determine whether this method will demonstrate lasting benefits and safety in the treatment of chronic Eustachian tube dysfunction.

TLDR
The results show that BET can effectively improve ET function in ears with OME or atelectasis and the procedure is well tolerated and without significant complications.

TLDR
Endoscopic transnasal ET balloon dilation is a novel approach to treating ET dysfunction and can be durable up to 3 years, and merits further investigation.
Computed Tomography Before Balloon Eustachian Tuboplasty–A True Necessity?
TLDR
Preoperative high-resolution CT scan of the temporal bone does not seem to be suitable to predict intraoperative or postoperative difficulties of balloon Eustachian tuboplasty, and the data presented suggest that fear of injury to the internal carotid artery during balloon dilatation might be disproportionate.

TLDR
Dilation of the cartilaginous ET appeared to be beneficial and without significant adverse effects in the treatment of ET dilatory dysfunction, and larger controlled trials with long-term results are now justified and needed.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that BET is a safe and effective treatment for improving eustachian tube function and ear ventilation and that 87% expressed satisfaction with the improvement in chronic obstructive dysfunction.

TLDR
Findings do not support the use of intranasal steroid sprays to treat the manifestations of eustachian tube dysfunction.
[Eustachian tube dilation using the Bielefeld balloon catheter: clinical experience with 320 interventions].
TLDR
Balloon dilation is a rapid, simple and safe method and is currently used in particular for treating patients with ventilatory dysfunction of the Eustachian tube which does not respond to other treatment.
