Eustachian tube dysfunction

Eustachian tube dysfunction is estimated to occur as a chronic condition in approximately 4% of adults worldwide, but it is an intermittent problem in an unknown higher percentage. The condition is multifactorial. In many cases, inflammation of the mucous membranes in and around the Eustachian tube produces obstruction. Uncoordinated movement of the muscles that open and close the tube may also play a role. Extrinsic factors such as excessive lymphoid tissue around the Eustachian tube opening may also be seen. If chronic Eustachian tube dysfunction remains untreated, it can lead to cholesteatoma and hearing loss.

Initial treatment targets the potential causes of mucosal inflammation, such as allergic rhinitis and acid reflux. This often includes topical or oral steroids, antihistamines, and acid-suppressant medications.

The nasal cycle

The nasal cycle (NC) is the spontaneous congestion and decongestion of the nasal mucosa during the day, where congestion of one side is accompanied by reciprocal decongestion of the contralateral side. It is based on the dilation/constriction of the venous cavernous tissue in the submucosa of the turbinates and septum, but also of the ethmoid sinuses.It is accepted that almost 70-80% of adults experience a regular NC, but a true periodicity/reciprocity exists only in 21-39% of the Population. NC is considered an ultradian rhythm of side-toside nasal mucosal engorgement with a phase length ranging from 30 min to 6h. As first described, in an ideal cycle, the two air passages should show reciprocal changes of equal amplitude, 180° out of phase, with an identical period and similar mean airflow, with total nasal flow remaining constant.
