      We would like to thank Barrios, Florez, and De la Hoz-Valle for their interest and commentary to our publication “Classification of Intraoperative Adverse Events in Visceral Surgery” and the favorable evaluation of ClassIntra as a tool for standardized assessment of intraoperative adverse events.

          Surgical procedures have increased worldwide from 234.2 million in 2004 to 312.9 million in 2012, an increase of 33.6%.1 Consequently, with an increase of surgeries, the frequency of intraoperative adverse events has also increased, with a negative impact on the patient’s postoperative evolution,2 evidencing the lack of a validated instrument for the standardized and transparent reporting of intraoperative adverse events.2 The Classification of Intraoperative Adverse Events (ClassIntra)2 was implemented to standardize any incident that deviated from the ideal intraoperative course related to surgery and anesthesia, and to increase the adherence to reporting intraoperative adverse events by surgeons and anesthesiologists, thereby improving information quality.
