The original article titled “The efficacy of pre-emptive dexmedetomidine versus amiodarone in preventing postoperative junctional ectopic tachycardia in pediatric cardiac surgery” published in Annals of Cardiac Anaesthesia, on pages 614-620, Issue 4, Volume 19, 2016,[1] is being retracted because high rate of data duplication/fabrication has been observed with an article titled “Efficacy of Prophylactic Dexmedetomidine in Preventing Postoperative Junctional Ectopic Tachycardia After Pediatric Cardiac Surgery” published in Journal of the American Heart Association, Volume 6, Issue 3, 2017.[2] It was brought to the attention of the journal's editorial board, that there is substantial overlap of content in article published later in JAHA. Thus, the journal's editorial office has decided to retract the article.
