Balloon Eustachian Tuboplasty - new video especially for surgeons

“Balloon dilatation of the Eustachian tube is an innovative minimally invasive therapeutic procedure which enables us to treat dysfunctions concerning ventilation of the middle ear successfully. In this procedure, the Eustachian tube is dilated using a catheter which is inserted into the tube during the operation.Then the Eustachian tube is dilated at 10 bar for about two minutes; and the better part of the patients treated so far have experienced a marked functional improvement and thus have been successfully treated for this kind of dysfunction.”
(Prof. Dr. Holger Sudhoff, M.D., head physician, ENT clinic, Bielefeld, October 2013)
