the children are anaesthetized using intravenous anaesthesia with propofol and remifentanil; a binasal catheter is used for administration of oxygen during the anaesthesia
anaesthesia using sevoflurane
the patients are anaesthetized using sevoflurane 1 MAC; a laryngeal mask is used

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. postanaesthetic recovery and behavioral score [ Time Frame: 0-24 hours hours postoperatively ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time span of the recovery process [ Time Frame: 0-3 hours postoperatively ]
