During this easy procedure, a catheter is used to insert a small balloon into the Eustachian tube via the patient’s nose. The balloon is gently inflated, restoring airflow and proper Eustachian tube function. The balloon is then deflated, and the catheter is removed. Patients will experience immediate relief without cutting or pain, with fast recovery time.
