If the Eustachian tube dysfunction, does not resolve with medical therapy like nasal sprays, then surgical options are the choice of treatment. Myringotomy, where a tiny slit is made in
the eardrum to aspirate any middle ear fluid
and to allow temporary ventilation into the middle ear space. Pressure Equalization Tube, PET, where a tiny plastic or metal tube, is introduced into myringotomy to keep the portal open. Please discuss this with your doctor when you meet him.
