The Eustachian tube in adults is a 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 pressure balance between the middle ear and throat, 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 specialty field. To be able to treat ventilation issues and dysfunctions of the Eustachian tube reliably, we have developed our system, which has become a recognized treatment method in the field of medicine. Over 125,000 TubaVent placements since its international market introduction in 2010 speak for our success.
The TubaVent short and the TubaVent short wide are Eustachian tube dilatation catheters, which, combined with the TubaInsert insertion device, allow a precise and straightforward application. The olive-shaped catheter tip ensures enhanced protection of the mucosa and soft anatomical structures.
