From: Applicability of the Clavien-Dindo classification to emergency surgical procedures: a retrospective cohort study on 444 consecutive patients

Risk factors Odds ratio 95% confidence interval
All complications   
Charlson index 1.34** 1.1 – 1.6
Preoperative organ dysfunction 4.4 2.0 – 9.4
Type of surgery: laparotomy 4.1 2.5 – 6.8
Grade III – V complications   
Charlson index 1.3** 1.1 – 1.5
Preoperative organ dysfunction 5.0 2.2 – 11.2
Type of surgery: laparotomy 8.4 4.3 – 16.3
Surgery because of surgical complication 3.2 1.002 – 10.2
