Title (EN) EUSTACHIAN TUBE MODIFICATION
(FR) MODIFICATION DE LA TROMPE D'EUSTACHE
Abstract:
(EN) Disclosed embodiments relate to devices, systems, and methods of shaping, shrinking, opening, dilating, stiffening, or otherwise modifying a Eustachian tube and its surrounding tissue in order to improve the Eustachian tube's function. For example, patients with blocked, closed, or hypertrophic Eustachian tubes may be able to achieve improved function including easier equalization of pressure between the inner ear and environment.
(FR) La présente invention concerne, selon des modes de réalisation, des dispositifs, des systèmes et des procédés de façonnage, de rétraction, d'ouverture, de dilatation, de raidissement, ou d'autre type de modification d'une trompe d'Eustache et de son tissu environnant afin d'améliorer la fonction de la trompe d'Eustache. Par exemple, des patients présentant un blocage, une fermeture ou une hypertrophie des trompes d'Eustache peuvent obtenir une meilleure fonction comprenant une égalisation de pression plus facile entre l'oreille interne et l'environnement.
