AO/OTA Classification app
AO trauma has developed an app that reviews the Muller classification of long bone fractures. This app is a thorough review of the Muller classification that is traditionally used by the AO and OTA. The app has a nice feature that allows takes the user through a step-by-step guide with photos to help you identify and classify the fracture pattern you may be dealing with. Once you have identified the fracture classification you then get to see the x-ray of the particular fracture pattern. While this tool may be used to help residents/ancillary staff and Emergency Room physicians to communicate with orthopaedic surgeons this tool is not practical to the everyday orthopaedic surgeon. Overall, an easy to use app that is not that useful for everyday practice.
