4 3 Pathophysiology of the Eustachian Tube: The Patulous Eustachian Tube The “Dynamic Stabilization” Despite the multitude of recommendations for the therapy of a pET, there still is no standard approach for these patients. All the studies published on the topic deal with a small number of patients. In addition, there is more than one pathophysiological mechanism responsible for the individual pET. Moreover, many of the components of the Eustachian tube playing a role in pET, such as the ingredients of the mucus, remain unknown.

Exceptions are subluxations of the stapes and footplate, fractures or perilymph fistulas. If the surgeon has any doubt that there may be some remnant of keratinizing epithelium, there will be a need for second-look surgery (Fig. 11). 2 Mesotympanic Cholesteatoma Mesotympanic, or pars tensa, cholesteatoma results from atelectasis and is located in the posterior quadrants of the tympanic membrane and tympanum. These cholesteatomas grow very deep medially to the Fallopian canal and into the barely visible area of the sinus tympani.

The risk of a long-term sniffing habit is to produce a chronic negative middle ear pressure and the development of middle ear diseases [60, 84, 108]. On the other hand, the reduction of the intrathoracic pressure during sniffing causes a lower pressure of the cervical vein and, subsequently, of the peritubal veins and thus may even enhance the symptoms [106]. Usually the pET does not lead to a chronic middle ear inflammation because the negative pressure in the tympanic cavity is not prolonged.
