Re-assessment of the actual benefit

Low clinical interest for cases of otorrhoea after grommet insertion


  • CILOXADEX has been granted a marketing authorisation for the treatment of otorrhoea after grommet insertion in adults and children.

  • Fluoroquinolone ear drops are the first-line antibiotics for otorrhoea after grommet insertion

  • The benefit of combining a corticosteroid with the topical antibiotic has not been demonstrated; hence, CILOXADEX is a second-line treatment.



Clinical Benefit


Le service médical rendu par CILOXADEX 3 mg/1 mg, solution pour instillation auriculaire est faible dans le traitement des otorrhées sur aérateurs transtympaniques chez l’enfant et l’adulte.
