Excerpt

The open fracture classification was developed by the OTA classification committee to address the limitation of the Gustilo-Anderson classification. The OTA-OFC is designed to be used at the time of initial debridement by the treating surgeon. It is generic, usable on all anatomical areas, and focused on factors related to injury not treatment.
