The ten articles listed below,[1],[2],[3],[4],[5],[6],[7],[8],[9],[10] all with the same corresponding author and published in the Saudi Journal of Anaesthesia from 2014-2018, are being retracted because they have been found to have a number of unattributed sections of content with high rate of similarity from various other articles along with overwhelming evidence of data fabrication. The corresponding author and his institution were contacted and asked to provide the journal with the raw data for these studies but there has been no adequate response within a reasonable timeframe.

Plagiarism, fabrication, unethical or redundant publication violates the editorial policy of the Saudi Journal of Anaesthesia, which follows best practice guidelines given by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) and Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), as mentioned in the Information for Authors and codified in the signed statements made by the authors regarding the copyright of their work.

These articles have been retracted at the request of the Editor-in-Chief and Editorial board of the journal.
