Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation or number (%). Syringe 1 = Shinchang Medical Co.; Syringe 2 = Becton, Dickinson; Syringe 3 = Sungshim Medical Co.; Group 1 = bevacizumab with agitation; Group 2 = bevacizumab without agitation; Group 3 = fluid with agitation; Group 4 = fluid without agitation.

*Fisher’s exact test; p-values < 0.05 that are statistically significant; Mann-Whitney test.
