  • Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation: Emerging Practice Patterns for a Novel Procedure. [Journal Article]
  • AOAnn Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2018 Sep 19; :3489418798858
  • Micucci S, Keschner DB, Liang J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Eustachian tube balloon dilation is a novel technique for the treatment of chronic ETD, and its role continues to evolve and develop. Current practice patterns demonstrate wide variability in the assessment of ETD, heterogeneity in the timing of ETBD, and controversy in preoperative CT screening.
  • Preliminary Study on Antinuclear Antibodies in Patients With Chronic Dilatory Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. [Journal Article]
  • ONOtol Neurotol 2018; 39(8):e612-e617
  • Fuchs A, Witte T, … Teschner M
  • CONCLUSIONS: The significant results of elevated ANA titers in chronic D-ETD make an autoimmune pathogenesis highly probable, at least in some of the patients concerned. Further research with higher numbers of patients is needed to confirm the hypothesis of an autoimmune chronic D-ETD. A better understanding of etiology and pathogenesis of chronic D-ETD might open up new and perhaps even causal therapeutic strategies.
  • Natural History of Tympanic Membrane Retraction in Children with Cleft Palate. [Journal Article]
  • JIJ Int Adv Otol 2018 Aug 03
  • Parkes W, Vilchez-Madrigal L, … James A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most tympanic membrane retractions remained stable or improved over time in this cohort of children who were at a risk of persistent eustachian tube dysfunction. Clinically significant progression occurred infrequently, justifying the conservative approach taken to manage these retractions. Such data are necessary to weigh the potential benefit of preventive intervention over observation.
