The Gustilo open fracture classification is the most commonly used classification system for Open fractures. Created by Ramon Gustilo and Anderson, then further expanded by Gustilo, Mendoza, and Williams. This system uses the amount of energy, the extent of soft-tissue injury and the extent of contamination for determination of fracture severity. Progression from grade 1 to 3C implies a higher degree of energy involved in the injury, higher soft tissue and bone damage and higher potential for complications. Important to recognize that grade 3C fracture implies vascular injury as well.
The Taylor Spatial Frame is an external fixator used by podiatric and orthopaedic surgeons to treat complex fractures and bone deformities. The medical device shares a number of components and features of the Ilizarov apparatus.
