Summary
Brief summary
Whereas there are several validated systems for reporting postoperative complications, there
are only a few and not prospectively validated systems for reporting intraoperative
complications. The investigators developed a definition and CLASSification for Intraoperative
Complications CLASSIC within a Delphi study involving international interdisciplinary
experts. As both surgery and anaesthesia may be involved in complications in the
perioperative period, all patient-related intraoperative complications occurring between skin
incision and closure are considered in this reporting system. CLASSIC was updated to
ClassIntra® v1·0, by encompassing five severity grades to align with the validated
Clavien-Dindo Classification for grading postoperative complications.

The aim of this international multicentre observational cohort study is to assess the
validity and practicability of this newly derived and updated classification system
ClassIntra® in patient undergoing an in-hospital surgical procedure. Providing an easy
applicable and internationally validated classification system is a contribution to improve
quality of health care and patient safety.
