M J Petrie, C M Blakey, C Chadwick, H G Davies, C M Blundell, M B Davies
AIMS: Fractures of the navicular can occur in isolation but, owing to the intimate anatomical and biomechanical relationships, are often associated with other injuries to the neighbouring bones and joints in the foot. As a result, they can lead to long-term morbidity and poor function. Our aim in this study was to identify patterns of injury in a new classification system of traumatic fractures of the navicular, with consideration being given to the commonly associated injuries to the midfoot...

BACKGROUND: Cuboid fractures are rare, usually occult on initial radiographs and are often underdiagnosed. MRI is more sensitive than radiographs for detecting acute, non-displaced cuboid fractures in adults, but only case reports have described these findings in children. OBJECTIVE: To summarize the MR and clinical features of cuboid fractures and compare MR findings with initial and follow-up radiographs in a cohort of children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective search for patients <18 years of age with cuboid fractures was performed during a 10-year period at a large tertiary children's hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Lisfranc injuries involve any bony or ligamentous disruption of the tarsometatarsal joint. Outcome results after treatment are mainly evaluated using patient-reported outcome measures (PROM), physical examination and radiographic findings. Less is known about the kinematics during gait. METHODS: Nineteen patients (19 feet) treated for Lisfranc injury were recruited. Patients with conservative treatment and surgical treatment consisting of open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) or primary arthrodesis were included...

An isolated medial cuneiform fracture is a rarely encountered injury of the foot. We present a case of an isolated medial cuneiform fracture in a patient after sustaining a fall from a 15-foot height. Treatment consisted of primary arthrodesis of the first tarsometatarsal joint due to a high degree of comminution and intra-articular pain. When radiographs are inconclusive and the index of suspicion remains high for a lesser tarsus fracture, computed tomography is recommended. In patients with minimal displacement, conservative treatment is usually successful in achieving osseous fusion...

Objective The optimal plate for fixation of tarsometatarsal joint injuries is controversial. The objective of this study was to compare the biomechanical characteristics between a locking plate and 1/4 tubular plate for first tarsometatarsal joint fracture-dislocation. Method Finite element analysis was used after establishment of a first tarsometatarsal joint fracture-dislocation model. Two implant simulations using a locking plate and five-hole 1/4 tubular plate were designed to simulate fixation of the fracture-dislocation...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic injuries to the tarsometatarsal or Lisfranc joints can be complex problems associated with long-term morbidity. Currently there is no clear consensus regarding optimal fixation methods. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between time from injury to treatment and treatment method with outcome. It is hypothesized that patients who underwent open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) more acutely would have higher return to duty rates. METHODS: This study is a retrospective review of 171 low-energy closed tarsometatarsal dislocations and fracture dislocations in patients identified using a Department of Defense trauma registry...

This article discusses tarsometatarsal arthrodesis for Lisfranc injuries. Although open reduction and internal fixation has traditionally been the treatment of choice for most Lisfranc fracture-dislocations, there is a trend toward primary fusion, especially for purely ligamentous injuries. Consideration should be made for primary fusion in select fracture-dislocation cases. Primary fusion offers a single-stage alternative with potentially more stable, predictable results overtime.

AIM: The classification of a Lisfranc injury has conventionally been based around Myerson's system. The aims of this study were to review whether a novel classification system based on sagittal displacement of the tarsometatarsal joint and breadth of injury as determined by a columnar theory was associated with functional outcomes and thus had a greater utility. PATIENTS: We retrospectively reviewed 54 Lisfranc injuries with a minimum follow up of two years at our Level One Trauma Centre...

OBJECTIVES: To study the influence of forefoot plantar pressure of the first tarsometatarsal joint fracture-dislocation by three different implants to provide experimental reference in selecting implants. METHODS: Eight fresh foot specimens were made into the models of the first tarsometatarsal joint fracture-dislocation, which were fixed with 3.5 mm cortical screw, 1/4 tubular plate and compressive staple in turn. After the loading of 600N, the changes of the plantar pressure in forefoot were measured by the method of the F-scan plantar pressure system...

A 50-year-old lady presented with a right foot mass and pain for 1year. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a 3.9×3.2×5cm mass on plantar side of the forefoot deep to the major flexor tendons and plantar aponeurosis and inferior to 1st-4th metatarsals. The mass extended dorsally through the intermetatarsal space to the foot dorsum. Ultrasound guided biopsy was performed, which confirmed it was a fibroma. This case was further complicated by pathological fracture of the 3rd metatarsal. It was resected through a dorsal incision and surgical dislocation of the 2nd and 3rd tarsometatarsal joints...

OBJECTIVE: "Lisfranc joint injury" is comprised of a tarsometatarsal joint-complex injury. The Lisfranc complex injury is always a challenge for orthopedists, and the optimum treatment is still up for debate. Anatomic reduction and stable internal fixation prove to have no satisfactory outcomes. This research aims to compare the clinical curative effects, complications and radiographic features of arthrodesis and non-fusion of the Lisfranc joint in the follow-up of the patients who suffered Lisfranc injuries...

BACKGROUND: Lisfranc (tarsometatarsal joint) injuries are relatively rare, accounting for less than 1% of all fractures, and as many as 20% of subtle Lisfranc injuries are missed at the initial patient presentation. An undiagnosed Lisfranc injury can have devastating consequences to the patient. Therefore, any factor that can raise a clinician's index of suspicion to make this diagnosis is potentially important. The cavus foot has been associated with various maladies of the lower extremity, but to our knowledge, it has not been reported to be associated with Lisfranc injury...

Fracture dislocations involving the Lisfranc joint are rare; they represent only 0.2% of all the fractures. There is no consensus about the surgical management of these lesions in the medical literature. However, both anatomical reduction and tarsometatarsal stabilization are essential for a good outcome. In this clinical study, five consecutive patients with a diagnosis of Lisfranc low-energy lesion were treated with a novel surgical technique characterized by minimal osteosynthesis performed through a minimally invasive approach...

The standard operative treatment of Lisfranc fracture dislocations currently consists of open reduction and transarticular fixation. Recently, bridge plating has been used more often. Using joint spanning, the reduced fracture dislocation is temporary stabilized to minimize articular damage. The present study describes the outcomes of patients treated with bridge plating after tarsometatarsal fracture dislocations compared with transarticular screw fixation. A retrospective cohort study was performed. Patients with an isolated tarsometatarsal injury who had been treated operatively from June 2000 to October 2013 were included...

More than 20% of the tarsometatarsal joint injuries (Lisfranc injuries) occur during motor vehicle accidents. This kind of trauma is infrequent and in 50% of cases closed reduction is used. A 18 year-old male patient sustained a high-energy trauma resulting in a Gustilo and Anderson III B open Lisfranc fracture dislocation of the left foot. Surgical debridement, open reduction and internal fixation, and immediate skin coverage were performed. The secondary complication rate may decrease with stringent treatment adherence and proper care of severe orthopedic injuries...
