The objectives of this study by Pohl et al. were to evaluate the feasibility of the insertion of a coronary stent from the nasopharynx into the Eustachian tube in-vivo in sheep and to make an initial assessment of its positional stability, tolerance by the animal, and possible tissue reactions. Additionally, induced aseptic otitis media was evaluated as a potential disease model.
