Significant Advance for People Who Require Ear Tubes
Balloon Opens Blocked Eustachian Tube
A catheter is used to insert a small balloon through the nose to open a blocked Eustachian tube. Inserting a small, balloon-like device in a blocked eustachian tube can bring relief to children and adults who suffer from chronic eustachian tube dysfunction. Duke ear nose and throat doctors — the first otolaryngologists in North Carolina to use the Aera system — say it has the potential to significantly reduce the need for ear tubes and other ear surgeries. The eustachian tube is the main connection between the back of the throat and the middle of the ear. Normally, the tube is filled with air and opens when yawning or chewing. When the tube is blocked from a cold, sinus or nose problems , or ear infections , air can no longer pass through. Stuffy ears and noses, hearing loss , ear pain and pressure, as well as ringing in the ears tinnitus can result. Blocked eustachian tubes can be relieved by nasal sprays and antihistamine tablets, which reduce inflammation and congestion. Recurrent eustachian tube dysfunction requires the surgical placement of tubes in the eardrum, which allows pressure to equalize in the middle ear. With the FDA-approved Aera system, children and adults with chronic eustachian tube dysfunction can opt for a simple, minute procedure instead, Kaylie said.
