Tuba Eustachii

For more than 10 years, we have been the pioneers and market leaders in the field of Eustachian tube dilatation. With our systems, we offer solutions which fulfill all requirements for a patient-friendly Eustachian Tube dilatation.

The Eustachian tube in adults is a 3.5 cm long, narrow, tube-like connection between the Pharynx and the middle ear. It is lined with respiratory epithelial tissue and consists of a long cartilaginous part on the side of the Pharynx as well as a short bony part towards the eardrum. The Eustachian tube enables a balance of pressure between the middle ear and throat possible, dissipates secretions from the middle ear to the Pharynx and protects the middle ear from germs that rise up from the throat.

A complete understanding of this complex structure in reference to the function and pathological development of diseases has occupied the field of medicine for decades.

At SPIGGLE & THEIS Medizintechnik GmbH, we are proud of our network of experts and our decades-long experience in this speciality field.

To be able to reliably treat ventilation issues and dysfunctions of the Eustaschian tube, we have developed our system, which has become a recognized treatment method in the field of medicine. More than 125,000 placements worldwide speak for our success.

Further development of our catheters was liked with a rising demand and adapted to the market requirements. After the successful introduction of the TubaVent® and TubaVent® short we now have additional balloon sizes available, the TubaVent® wide and TubaVent® short wide.
