AOSpine Injury Classification Systems

     ​   

​The AOSpine Knowledge Forum Trauma was given the task to develop and validate a new classification system. The AOSpine Thoracolumbar and Subaxial Classification systems are the result of a systematic assessment and revision of the Magerl classification. The AOSpine Classification Group reached a consensus on a classification that incorporates both fracture morphology and clinical factors relevant for clinical decision making. After the endorsement of the classification by the International Board, the Knowledge Forum Trauma finalized the validation studies.
