1) They are believed to form as the result of poor eustachian tube function with resultant tympanic membrane retraction and a lack of normal epithelial migration.

These new findings confirm and extend the research reported in several recent publications and scientific presentations where it has been shown that TB4 markedly accelerates wound healing by increasing epithelial migration and reducing inflammation, both of which are important to more rapid and complete healing.
Several hypotheses have been proposed, including (1) microtrauma to the external canal skin; (2) retention of hard or adulterated cerumen; (3) focal osteitis; (4) hypoxia leading to angiogenesis via hepatocyte growth factor/scatter factor, tyrosine-kinase c-Met receptor, and vascular endothelial growth factor; and (5) decreased epithelial migration secondary to aging or poor blood supply.
