Currently, certain fractures classification is just mere understanding of the fracture patterns rather than indentifying various factors which affect the final outcome in terms of biological and functional outcome.
The fracture fixation should take into anatomical, biological and biomechanical consideration before attempting to classify to define its plan of management. Recent literature, there is lack of evidence based
medicine in terms of final outcome for certain fractures of our concern, for example injuries like floating knee.
