Answer

The AO/OTA Fracture and Dislocation Classification can be used in diagnosing specific forms of long bone fractures. [7, 8, 9]

For more information, see Medscape's Trauma Resource Center. For excellent patient education resources, visit eMedicineHealth's First Aid and Injuries Center. Also, see eMedicineHealth's patient education article Broken Leg.
