Abstract [en]

The literature on tympanostomy tube treatment of children with recurrent and secretory otitis media was reviewed. The evidence for positive effects of tube treatment in secretory otitis media is verified. In contrast their efficiency in recurrent otitis media is less well studied. Some routines eg related to the surgical procedure and the prophylactic treatment of tube drainage lack evidence and should be avoided. The full report of the systematic literature review can be obtained at Based on this report the Swedish Society for Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery will now create national clinical guidelines for tube treatment in recurrent and secretory otitis media.
