However, one study showed no statistical difference in the postoperative outcome comparing patients with repaired cleft palate to non-cleft patients . 1 Eustachian Tube Function and Mastoid Surgery Mastoidectomy in combination with tympanoplasty is widely used, even in noncholesteatoma cases. However, mastoidectomy does not improve the aeration situation in the middle ear space. Takahashi  showed that a postmastoidectomy cavity could not be expected to revive as a functioning gas exchange chamber.
Unfortunately, exact numbers of patients successfully treated are unknown. Another technical approach is to impair the opening force of the tensor veli palatini muscle, either by resection or by toxic inhibition [120, 187, 206]. Stroud et al.  cut off the tensor’s tendon in 10 patients with pET, with a reported success rate of 90 % (9 of 10 patients). Virtanen and Palva  extended the concept by the fracture or resection of the pterygoid hamulus. According to the authors, 9 of 13 patients remained without pET complaints up to 60 months.
