Treatment For Blocked Eustachian Tubes
A little if allergic: If you have allergy and your ear pressure it caused by allergic swelling then it may help some. Adding an aerosol nasal spray may also help (only 2 available in the US-Beclomethasone and Ciclesonide) . Liquid or water based sprays with some available OTC are not as effective because they don't reach the Eustachian tube openning. ...Read more
Depends on degree : Of damage. This often can not be determined until surgery. You should find a highly skilled reproductive surgeon. Even most reproductive endocrinologists don't do much tubal surgery. Most want to remove and do ivf. Depending on age and level of damage the fertility rates with tubal repair can be quite good. Good luck. ...Read more
Disease Complication: Simple appendectomy has a very low risk for long term complication. However, if the appendix has perforated before surgery, regional peritonitis can lead to scarring of your tubes. It really should not be considered a surgical complication but the result of an infectious/inflammatory process. Pid/std, colitis, ibd, can do the same as a perforated appendicitis to the tubes. ...Read more

Not helpful : Nasal steroids are not necessarily helpful for a eustachian tube that is larger than it should be or patulous. Many doctors will try this therapy, but there is no evidence to suggest it is helpful. It is a difficult problem and no specific therapy is helpful. See your ENT for suggestions. ...Read more

Unlikely: If you know your fallopian tubes are blocked -probably from a dye/radiology procedure - that is a bad sign. This can be from many different causes, but I am not aware of a way to unblock them. Under the microscope, on cross section, the fallopian tubes look like a maze game (very convoluted insides with a ton of surface area). These areas have become scarred closed. You may need artificial means.. ...Read more
Not very: While fallopian tube repair after sterilization can have a high success rate in some cases, success rates are much lower if the tubes are blocked as a result of infection - so much so that most if not all infertility physicians would reccomend ivf rather than trying to repair them. ...Read more
Fairly obsolete: Fallopian tube repair was unfortunately complicated by poor fertility recovery and high ectopic pregnancy rate. When ivf became available in the 1980's, it was found to be far more effective to assist fertility. It also depends which part of your tubes are blocked. I would discuss with your OB gyn. ...Read more
Hsg result show that I have have a blocked fallopian tube. please what is the treatment for blocked tube?
Options: If you are otherwise healthy and only one tube is blocked, often nothing is done as you can still get pregnant. Laparoscopy is a possible treatment with the aim of breaking up adhesions from prior infections. It is also possible to open tubes from inside the tubes using x-ray guidance. This is similar to angioplasty for occluded or narrowed blood vessels. ...Read more
Yes it can: unfortunately, please follow up with your ENT doctor or your allergist, you may need to be on put nasal sprays regularly for some time, or may need ventlation tubes.

Have a pleasent trip: The middle ear fluid that is part of your ear infection/eustachian dysfunction will actually protect you from the regular cycle of middle ear discomfort with landing. The pressurization of the aircraft is not high enough to cause any change in the middle ear fluid or pressure therein. Of the many issues involved in today's air travel, this should be a pleasent surprise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe, sometimes: Theoretically this makes sense but studies have failed to show this is clearly true. There are many kinds of block that will definitely NOT be unblocked with dye, whether it helps in other cases is still inconclusive. There are other methods for unblocking some tubes. Good wishes. ...Read more
