Abstract [en]

There is no unanimous consensus for indications of eustachian tube balloon dilation (ETBD). Nordic countries have relatively similar hospital organizations and treatment guidelines. Therefore, it was logical to organize a consensus meeting of ETBD. The symposium: Nordic Experiences on Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation, in Copenhagen, 30-31 March, 2017. The panellists from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden and the attendees of the meeting agreed a consensus on the following issues: Candidates, Definition of Eustachian Tube Dysfunction, Diagnostic Work up, Differential Diagnosis, Contraindications, ETBD Procedure, Complications, Follow-up, and Outcomes. The article also presents the status for ETBD in each of these countries. Thereafter the consensus statement has been discussed in the national societies and meetings for ear surgeons in each of these countries. It can be assumed that surgeons in the hospitals of these Nordic countries generally follow the recommendations from the consensus meeting.
