Sample text

Officially, injection of Teflon® paste anterior to the mouth of the Eustachian tube has been stopped by the manufacturer of the paste because of serious complications caused by the Teflon paste being accidentally injected into the internal carotid artery [130]. 2 shows an MRI of a young adult German patient treated by Pulec himself in the 1990s. Other materials have been used for augmentation and/or obstruction, such as autologous fat, collagen and even silicone. Surprisingly there are no long-term results published.

5 × 1 cm are implanted between the tensor veli palatini muscle and the Eustachian tube under full anaesthesia (Fig. 3a, b). For implantation a transpalatinal approach is used, which is controlled by nasal endoscopy. A navigation system can help to avoid misplacement (Fig. 4). Once the bed for the cartilage is formed by a scissor, the splint is pushed upward as far as possible (Fig. 5). Due to the good results of the physiotherapy, only seven patients have been treated using this augmentation method.

Unfortunately, exact numbers of patients successfully treated are unknown. Another technical approach is to impair the opening force of the tensor veli palatini muscle, either by resection or by toxic inhibition [120, 187, 206]. Stroud et al. [187] cut off the tensor’s tendon in 10 patients with pET, with a reported success rate of 90 % (9 of 10 patients). Virtanen and Palva [206] extended the concept by the fracture or resection of the pterygoid hamulus. According to the authors, 9 of 13 patients remained without pET complaints up to 60 months.
