The purpose of this new classification compendium is to republish the Orthopaedic Trauma Association's (OTA) classification. The OTA classification was originally published in a compendium of the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma in 1996. It adopted The Comprehensive Classification of the Long Bones developed by Müller and colleagues and classified the remaining bones. In this compendium, the introductory chapter reviews new scientific information about classifying fractures that has been published… 

Under-utilization of the OTA Fracture Classification in the orthopaedic trauma literature.

Routine and consistent utilization of the OTA Fracture Classification may ultimately lead to more consistency and improved interpretability of treatment outcomes in published orthopaedic trauma research.

New Classification System for Long-bone Fractures Supplementing the AO/OTA

A novel, clinically oriented classification system for long-bone fractures that is simple, reliable, and useful to predict treatment method, complications, and outcome is described.

New classification system for long-bone fractures supplementing the AO/OTA classification.

The proposed classification system proved simple, reliable, and memorable, and appeared strong enough to justify the organization of larger studies for a complete assessment of its clinical usefulness for all long-bone fractures.

The First AO Classification System for Fractures of the Craniomaxillofacial Skeleton: Rationale, Methodological Background, Developmental Process, and Objectives

The rationale for the comprehensive AO CMF classification system is described, the methodological framework is discussed, and insight is provided into the experiences and interactions during the evaluation process within the core groups.

Implementation of a fracture and dislocation registry Epidemiology and scoring validity of long-bone fractures

The implementation of the Fracture and Dislocation Registry of Stavanger University Hospital has been made successfully and the classification according to AO/OTA classification (= Muller classification) seems to be satisfactory reliable.

The difference between AO and OTA on 31A2.3 fractures.

In a randomized trial, it is found that agreement could improve significantly by training of doctors, especially among specialists, however, classification of proximal humeral fractures remains a challenge for the conduct, reporting, and interpretation of clinical trials.

Reliability and Reproducibility of the OTA/AO Classification for Humeral Shaft Fractures

The OTA/AO classification for humeral shaft fractures has a moderate interobserver and substantial intraobserver agreement for fracture types and groups and showed no differences between surgical disciplines.
