AERA™ for Eustachian Tube Dysfunction
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.
Patients can permanently cure ear infection pain by taking just one day for this convenient in-office treatment.
First, a catheter is used to insert a small balloon into the Eustachian tube. The balloon is inflated gently to expand the Eustachian tube.
The balloon is then deflated, and the catheter is removed, restoring proper Eustachian tube function.
