Tuba

Causal therapy for tube dysfunction

As the first of its kind, the TubaVent® System was developed to treat dysfunctions of the Eustachian Tube by means of a special gentle and persistently controlled dilatation. Our dilatation catheter has had over 100,000 applications worldwide since its market introduction in 2010. Thanks to the high levels of patient satisfaction and the significant improvement of the Eustachian Tube function, which can be achieved with our systems, this treatment method has become firmly established in practice.

The TubaVent® short is a modified dilatation catheter, which in combination with the TubaInsert® insertion instrument allows for a precise and simple application. The olive-shaped catheter tip also allows safe application where there are soft anatomical structures.

TubaVent_short

TubaVent® short and TubaVent® short wide

  • The olive-shaped tip ensures enhanced protection of the mucosa

    The catheter dimensions are perfectly adapted to the length of the single use insertion instrument (TubaInsert®), which defines the process and prevents the catheter from being pushed too far into the Tuba Eustachii

    Controlled dilatation

  • Art. No. 2080-1236320 WL 236 mm, balloon 3.28 x 20 mm (at 10 bar), sterile
  • Art. No. 2080-12364520 WL 236 mm, balloon 4.94 x 20 mm (at 10 bar), sterile (NEW! TubaVent® short wide)

TubaVent®- Concept in the treatment of chronic tube ventilation disorders

The multi-use combination instrument enables Eustachian Tube Dysfunctions to be easily treated. The entry angles which are available make it possible to fulfill all anatomical conditions.

TubaVent® and TubaVent® wide

  • The catheter tip allows for easy advancement of the catheter while providing optimal protection for the mucous membrane cleaning system

    Optimum length guarantees complete dilatation of the cartilaginous part
