Eustachian Tube Dilation (ETD)
Current treatment options for Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) are limited and invasive. Some options provide temporary relief but often cause other problems. To meet the need of a minimally invasive treatment, Dr. Alen Cohen utilizes the Stryker XprESS™ ENT Dilation System which provides a safe, effective and minimally invasive treatment for ETD patients.
A number of clinical studies have examined the safety and effectiveness of Eustachian tube balloon dilation. These studies demonstrate high rates of success along with a very low rate of side effects. In a recent trial of the XprESS balloon dilation device in patients with persistent ETD demonstrated superior symptom improvement over medical treatment with a 0% complication rate.
