Further study details as provided by Seoul National University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • corrected QT interval (QTc interval) [ Time Frame: up to 90 minutes after induction of general anesthesia ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    at 2, 10, 15, 30, 60, 90 minutes after induction of general anesthesia, up to 1 minute after tracheal intubation


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • proportion of patients whose corrected QT interval (QTc interval) is more than 450 ms for male or 470 ms for female [ Time Frame: up to 2 hours after induction of general anesthesia ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • corrected QT interval (QTc interval) at Postanesthetic care unit [ Time Frame: up to 1 hour after arrival on postanesthetic care unit ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting [ Time Frame: for 24 hours after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • proportion of patients who have more than 500 ms of corrected QT interval (QTc interval) [ Time Frame: up to 2 hours after induction of general anesthesia ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
