Eustachian Tube Dysfunction
Are You Suffering with Ear Pain, Pressure or Dulled Hearing? AERA™ Can Relieve Ear Pain Due to Eustachian Tube Dysfunction
The Eustachian tube is responsible for equalizing pressure in the middle ear, and also allows mucus to drain. Normally, the Eustachian tube is collapsed, but opens when swallowing.
Swelling in the Eustachian tube (or the membranes surrounding its opening) may result from upper respiratory tract infections or allergies. This can lead to fluid becoming trapped in the ear, leading to bacterial growth, and ear infections.
For many patients, decongestants may help to reduce swelling. However, when
this condition becomes persistent, decongestants alone may not be enough.
AERA™: Innovation in Adult Ear Pain Relief
Previously, Eustachian Tube Dysfunction has been treated with medications or with an ear tube operation. However, these procedures do not address the underlying problem and may lead patients to develop chronic symptoms and long-term complications.
When medical treatment has failed to provide lasting relief for ear pain, swelling, and pressure related to Eustachian Tube Dysfunction, you may be a candidate for the AERA™ Eustachian Tube Dilation procedure.
