ETD treatment options
In the past, the most common treatments for ETD were medications and surgical procedures. However, medicine didn't always get the job done, and traditional eustachian tube surgery was invasive and came with a long recovery period.
Now, there is a better way.
Eustachian tube balloon dilation: a minimally invasive approach to middle ear health
Balloon dilation is a minimally invasive treatment option that has recently become more popular than traditional ETD treatments. It can be done right in the doctor's office, quickly and with minimal discomfort. The procedure involves inserting a small balloon catheter into the Eustachian tube and then inflating it. This expands the tube, improving airflow and pressure equalization within the ear.
The safety and effectiveness of eustachian tube balloon dilation has been proven time and time again in a number of studies.
The results of the treatment include fewer complications and fast, effective relief.
