ETD is treated with nasal sprays, antibiotics (if infected), decongestants, and possibly pressure equalization. There is now a new technique that treats the ET directly called Eustachian Tube Dilation or Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation.
What Is Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation?
Many of the current treatment options for Eustachian tube dysfunction are limited or invasive, but a newer treatment option using balloon dilation can restore Eustachian tube function and relieve symptoms. Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation provides a safe, effective, and less invasive treatment for people with Eustachian tube dysfunction. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia but may be done in the operating room or in the office.
