Evaluation of the usefulness of the Clavien-Dindo classification of surgical complications

Abstract: The Clavien-Dindo (CD) classification is widely used in the reporting of surgical complications in scientific literature. It groups complications based on the level of intervention required to resolve them, and benefits from simplicity and ease of use, both of which contribute its to high inter-rater reliability. It has been validated for use in many specialties due to strong correlation with key outcome measures including length of stay, postsurgical quality of life and case-related renumeration. Limitations of the classification include concerns over differentiating grade III and IV complications and not classifying intraoperative complications. The Comprehensive Complication Index is an adaptation of the CD classification which generates a morbidity score from 0 to 100. It has been proposed as a more effective method of assessing the morbidity burden of surgical procedures. However, it remains less popular as calculations of morbidity are complicated and time-consuming. In recent years there have been suggestions of adaptations to the CD classification such as the Clavien-Dindo-Sink classification, while in some specialties, completely new classifications have been proposed due to evidence the CD classification is not reliable. Similarly, the Surgical Expertise and Validity Evaluation project aims to determine benchmarks against which surgeons may compare their own practice
