Intervention Details:
    Drug: Propofol
    Patients in the Propofol Group (PG) will be induced with target-controlled infusion (TCI) of propofol (Diprifusor, AstraZeneca) and remifentanil (Asena PK, Cardinal Health) at the target dose of 6.0 µg.ml-1 and 8.0 ηg.ml-1, respectively. The patients in the Sevoflurane Group (SG) will be induced with remifentanil TCI at target dose of 8.0 ηg.ml-1 and etomidate 0.5 mg.kg-1 in bolus.
