A study group emanating from the French Society of Otolaryngologists and Associated Paediatric Otologists, anaesthetists and bacteriologists carried out a review of the world literature regarding the indications, technique and results of simple myringoplasty in children. The group assessed the levels of evidence present in published articles and the opinions of experts in the field, due to the lack of sufficient evidence. The study group then established recommendations for good practice. These were sent to otolaryngologists, paediatricians, general practitioners and anaesthetists involved in the care of children under the age of 15 presenting with a simple non-infected tympanic membrane perforation and without affection of the ossicular chain. The full text of the recommendations is provided.
