Lisfranc Fracture

by Admin on April 17, 2012

A Lisfranc fracture occurs when the metatarsal bones of the forefoot is fractures and dislocated dorsally on the bone of the midfoot. The historical typical mechanism of this injury was when a horse rider fell from the horse and the foot is still in the stirrups. The treatment for a Lisfranc fracture is either conservative (with plaster immobilization) or surgical, depending on the extent of displacement of the bone fragments.
