Modifications of the nasopharyngeal anatomy by surgical procedures, such as adenoidectomy or tonsillectomy with postoperative scarring, can also be a cause of a pET . Likewise, scarring after irradiation of the cranium can also result in a closing failure of the Eustachian tube, which can be shown using tubal manometry in about 50 % of the patients .

Neither oedema-inducing drugs , paratubal injections at the pharyngeal orifice , ventilation tubes in the ear drum , surgical manipulations on the tensor veli palatini muscle , nor a complete obstruction of the Eustachian tube [13, 31] could show more than temporary effects on the symptoms.
