This systematic review found insufficient evidence to draw conclusions about the effectiveness of any intervention for adults with Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD). The quality of the evidence was generally poor. Evidence was insufficient to allow recommendation of a trial of any particular intervention. Further research is needed to establish a definition of ETD, its relation to broader middle ear ventilation problems and clear diagnostic criteria.

The development of cholesterol-rich plaque within the walls of coronary arteries (atherosclerosis) is the pathological process which underlies ‘coronary artery disease’. However, the clinical manifestations of this generic condition are varied. When the atherosclerotic process advances insidiously the lumen of a coronary artery becomes progressively narrowed blood supply to the myocardium is compromised (ischaemia) and the affected individual will often develop predictable exertional chest discomfort, or ‘stable’ angina. However, at any stage in the development of atherosclerosis, and often when the coronary artery lumen is narrowed only slightly or not at all, an unstable plaque may develop a tear of its inner lining cell layer (intima), exposing the underlying cholesterol rich atheroma within the vessel wall to the blood flowing in the lumen. This exposure stimulates platelet aggregation and subsequent clot (thrombus) formation.
