Reason for withdrawal from publication

An update of this review was initiated by Janice A Lander1 and Barbara Brady-Fryer2 in 2011, who proposed changing the title to "Three topical anaesthetics for reduction of children's pain associated with venipuncture and intravenous cannulation". At 23 May 2013, The Cochrane Pain, Palliative and Supportive Care Review Group (PaPaS) withdrew this review as the authors were no longer available to complete the update.
