BACKGROUND: Anesthesia and surgery can lead to major distress for children. Sedative premedication and preoperative preparation techniques are available to reduce preoperative anxiety in children. We aimed to assess the effect of informational video based on role-play modelling on preoperative anxiety and postoperative behavior changes in children undergoing surgery.
