The article ‘Prophylactic therapy with granisetron in the prevention of vomiting after pediatric surgery: a randomized, double-blind comparison with droperidol and metoclopramide’ by Fujii Y, Tanaka H, published in Pediatric Anesthesia 1998 Feb; 8 (2): 149–153  and online at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1046/j.1460-9592.1998.00761.x/abstract, is being retracted as a result of: (i) overwhelming evidence of fabrication in Dr. Fujii's studies, related to the fact that the distributions of many variables reported in these studies could not have occurred by chance [2, 3]; and (ii) the inability of Dr. Fujii's institution (Toride Kyodo General Hospital) to attest to the integrity of the study and/or its data, or ethical approval, conducted under its auspices, as set out in the Joint Editors-in-Chief Request for Determination of April 9, 2012 .
