During the procedure, the ACCLARENT AERA® Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation System system dilates (opens up) your Eustachian tube through use of a small balloon.

  • The balloon is guided through your nose and into your Eustachian tube
  • Once in place, it is inflated to open up or widen your Eustachian tube to relieve any pressure imbalance or blockage that could be causing you discomfort
  • After your Eustachian tube has been widened, the balloon is deflated and removed from your Eustachian tube
