RECOMMENDATION: OTA-OFC is preferred. Based on currently-available data, the OTA-OFC provides a more robust description of the injury with interobserver agreement that is comparable or superior to the Gustilo-Anderson classifi cation. Additionally, the OTA-OFC, according to its subcategories, may predict outcomes such as the likelihood of early amputation and need for adjuvant treatments.
