The article published in the January 2001 issue of the Archives of Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery titled “Prevention of Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting With Antiemetics in Patients Undergoing Middle Ear Surgery: Comparison of a Small Dose of Propofol With Droperidol or Metoclopramide” by Fujii et al1 is hereby retracted. Allegations have been raised about the scientific integrity and ethical oversight of research conducted by Fujii.2 Our investigation revealed that Fujii and coauthors had not applied to the ethics committee for institutional review board approval regarding this study published in Archives of Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery, and therefore we are retracting this article.
