Abstract

Despite the frequency of open fractures, their management remains one of the greatest and most debated orthopedic challenges. The current challenges that health care faces financially and clinically offer an opportunity to develop a universal reliable, reproducible, evidence-based protocol. The authors review the current evidence concerning the acute management of open fractures and suggest a modern treatment algorithm.
