Fracture and Dislocation Classification for Children
Poland first proposed the classification of epiphyseal injuries in children in 1898. In 1863, Salter-Harris divided epiphyseal injuries in children into five types, which has been widely accepted. Mercer Rang added type VI based on the classification of Salter-Harris.
