The German version of the International Classification of Procedures in Medicine (ICPM) [3] is used in the Department of General Surgery of Göttingen University since 1995. There is full compatibility with the official catalogue of operations (OPS-301) [4] for administrative purpose combined with a more sophisticated medical classification. The ICPM may become a reference system for scientific evaluations of surgical treatment [1].
