Tensor veli palatini electromyography for monitoring Eustachian tube rehabilitation in otitis media.

Abstract The pathogenesis of otitis media is related to Eustachian tube dysfunction. The tensor veli palatini muscle actively opens the Eustachian tube and promotes middle-ear ventilation. This study describes a technique for paratubal electromyography that uses a surface, non-invasive electrode able to record tensor veli palatini muscle activity during swallowing.

AB  - BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of otitis media is related to Eustachian tube
      dysfunction. The tensor veli palatini muscle actively opens the Eustachian tube
      and promotes middle-ear ventilation. This study describes a technique for
      paratubal electromyography that uses a surface, non-invasive electrode able to
      record tensor veli palatini muscle activity during swallowing. METHODS: Twenty
      otitis media patients and 10 healthy patients underwent tensor veli palatini
      electromyography. Activity of this muscle before and after Eustachian tube
      rehabilitation was also assessed. RESULTS: In 78.5 per cent of patients, the
      electromyography duration phase and/or amplitude were reduced in the affected
      side. The muscle action potential was impaired in all patients who underwent
      Eustachian tube rehabilitation. CONCLUSION: This study confirmed that Eustachian 
      tube muscle dysfunction has a role in otitis media pathogenesis and showed that
      muscle activity increases after Eustachian tube rehabilitation therapy.
