      Prospective validation of classification of intraoperative adverse events (ClassIntra): international, multicentre cohort study.
      Gawaria et al reported that iAEs occurred during 34% of visceral surgeries and 28% of nonvisceral surgeries. The authors also found that an increasing iAE grade was associated with an increased incidence of postoperative complications and prolonged length of stay.

      We commend the authors for their thoughtful approach to understanding the interplay of iAEs, their timing, and severity.
