Balloon Dilation for Eustachian Tube Dysfunction
Eustachian tube dysfunction affects 2.4 million adults — and is on the rise1
Current treatment options for Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) are limited and invasive. Some options provide temporary relief, but often cause other problems. To meet this need, the XprESS™ ENT Dilation System provides a safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment for ETD patients.
Clinically Proven & Established
A number of clinical studies have examined the safety and effectiveness of Eustachian tube balloon dilation. These studies demonstrate high rates of technical success along with a very low incidence of adverse events. A recent prospective, multicenter, randomized trial of the XprESS balloon dilation device in patients with persistent ETD demonstrated superior symptom improvement over medical treatment with a 0% complication rate2.
The XprESS ENT Dilation System is designed to remodel or recreate the sinus outflow tract and dilate the Eustachian tube by transnasal balloon dilation. The XprESS device combines features of a curved suction tip and an ostium seeker with the tissue expansion effect of balloon dilation. The familiar features of this device enable a physician to track the device into the Eustachian tubes using endoscopic visualization under local anesthesia.
