The Eustachian tube is closed at rest and is actively opened only under controlled conditions during respiratory rest in the nasopharynx. If the Eustachian tube is opened outside this limited range of time, there is a pathological communication between the nasopharynx and the tympanic : John L.

Also, the anatomist Duverney claimed the Eustachian tube (ET) to be permanently open, but he described the airway as bidirectional and claimed there was a second function of the tube: the clearance of fluids from the middle ear. The Eustachian tube anatomy and its clinical significance have been studied using human cadaveric temporal bone specimens as well as CT and MRI studies Author: John L.

The repetitive barotrauma induced by sniffing or reverse Valsalva maneuvers seems to be a basic predisposing factor in the development of recurrent middle ear effusion and chronic middle ear disease, including adhesive otitis and cholesteatoma.

The Eustachian Tubeis the first book to comprehensively cover these disorders in both adults and children. The Eustachian Tubebegins with an overview of middle ear anatomy, and the epidemiology of middle ear disorders. Then it discusses current tests of eustachian tube function, as well as the physiology and pathophysiology of the eustachian 5/5(1).

Overview Eustachian tubes are small tubes that run between your middle ears and the upper throat. They are responsible for equalizing ear pressure and draining fluid from the middle ear Author: Kristeen Cherney. It has been classically hypothesized that a mass in the nasopharynx causes an obstacle to air flow through the eustachian tube, thereby creating a negative pressure in the middle ear followed by an effusion.
