Example text

This effect is temporary, and sniffing will be repeatedly used. 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.

By inflating an air balloon via one nostril while the opposite one is compressed, an insufflation of the middle ear is possible. If all these surgical and non-surgical therapies fail, the recommendation is to insert tympanometry tubes. Directly treating the Eustachian tube is not helpful and should be avoided, especially in children. 2 Chronic Suppurative Otitis Media The situation in chronic suppurative otitis media is characterized by a central perforation. There are periods of a runny ear followed by times of no discharge.

Autogenous ossicles, with the incus being the first choice, followed by the head of the malleus, are used with great acceptance. Adverse reactions from the implantation site are not expected. If the reconstruction is dislocated, there may be a problem with growth towards the promontory or the Fallopian canal, resulting in osseous fixation. Use of ossicles from ears with chronic otitis, where quite an amount of osteitis has been described histologically [46], is questionable. However, it is doubtful that the histological finding of osteitis is a problem for mechanical instability; rather, it may be the expression of the chronic otitis media itself.
