The authors describe a surgical technique of simple myringoplasty with a cartilage graft which can be done as a day surgery. The main point is the suspension of this graft by a suture (Vicryl 6-0) to the skin of the external auditory meatus. The preliminary results on twenty seven patients are successful with a rate of complete closure which is 92,6%. This technique must be reserved for dry, limited, nonmarginal perforations and without ossicular problem or connection with the handle of the malleus.
