Abstract Conclusion: Evaluation of the protympanic segment of the eustachian tube is feasible during chronic ear surgery. Balloon dilatation of that segment yields a bigger aperture. Objective: To evaluate the feasibility of visualization and balloon dilatation of the protympanic segment of the eustachian tube during chronic ear surgery. Methods: This study was carried out on a consecutive case series. All patients undergoing surgical treatment for cholesteatoma or tympanic membrane perforation…

Transtympanic dilatation increases the patency of the Eustachian tube immediately after instrumentation and is warranted to identify its role, if any, in chronic ear surgery.

There is a very narrow evidence base for transtympanic balloon dilatation of the eustachian tube and previously identified and theoretical safety concerns will need to be addressed thoroughly in future studies prior to wider clinical use.

With full endoscopic visualization, the transtympanic approach to balloon catheter dilatation of the ET seems to be a feasible and safe procedure in the cadaver model.

Management of Patulous Eustachian Tube

Patients with patulous Eustachian tubes (PET) suffer from annoying aural symptoms, such as voice or breath autophony, and aural fullness due to the ET’s abnormal patency. It may lead to an enormous

The protympanum, protiniculum and subtensor recess: an endoscopic morphological anatomy study.

The protympanum is an area that has been ignored for many years because of difficulties in visualising it with an operating microscope, however, modern endoscopic equipment has changed this, providing detailed anatomical knowledge fundamental to ensuring the safety of endoscopic surgical procedures in the region.

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.

Principles of endoscopic ear surgery

The article discusses the advantages of endoscopic ear surgery in treating cholesteatoma and how the hidden sites like facial recess, sinus tympani, and anterior epitympanum are easily accessed using the endoscope.

The absence of mercury in Beethoven’s hair and bone samples leads us to conclude that his deafness was not due to syphilis, because in that era, syphilis was treated with mercury.

Findings are based on tubal patency pressure studies measured with a mercurial manometer with the patient performing the Valsalva maneuver, with catheterization of the eustachian tube, and with politzerization, that central and peripheral eustACHian tube function in relation to tympanoplasty is similar.

Endoscopic management of cholesteatoma allows the use of the ear canal as the direct and natural access point to cholsteatoma within the mesotympanum, attic, facial recess, sinus tympani, hypotympa, and eustachian tube and does not improve access to mastoid disease.

Main pathological findings associated with tubal dysfunction involved inflammation in the nasopharynx, particularly around the orifice of the eustachian tube.

Eustachian Tube Endoscopy in Patients With Chronic Ear Disease

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the eustachian tube, based on observations from trans–eustachia tube endoscopy, which has been implicated in the chronicity and pathogenesis of chronic ear disease.
