Abstract

The classification of fractures is necessary to make a proper assessment of the injury and to recommend appropriate treatment. This article presents a treatment-based classification that assists in directing treatment. It is straight forward and easy to remember, yet has the potential for expansion to more detailed subclassifications as desired. Specific treatment planning can result from reference to this classification.
