Lisfranc fractures

  1. 1. Lisfranc Injuries
  2. 2. Anatomy  Tarso-metatarsal joint  Midfoot  Bones held in place by ligaments.  No ligament connection between 1st and 2nd metatarsals
  3. 3. Mechanism of Injury  Direct trauma/crush  Twisting  Plantar flexion with axial loading  Low or high energy (beware of associated injuries)
  4. 4. Mechanisms
  5. 5. Clinical Presentation  Variable  Pain, especially with weight bearing activity  Plantar ecchymosis  Dorsal tenderness, edema  Mild discomfort  Deformity/instability  High index of suspicion based on mechanism!
  6. 6. Diagnosis  Physical exam view X-Ray (AP, lateral, medial oblique)-weight- bearing films helpful.  20% of films are negative initially. Repeat films at 7-14 days, consider CT/MRI.  Often mistaken as a sprain-when in doubt, splint and refer to ortho.
  7. 7. Fracture/dislocation findings  The most consistent finding is misalignment along the medial side of second MT and second cuneiform.
  8. 8. Fracture/dislocation findings
  9. 9. Fracture/dislocation findings  The medial cuneiform-second MT space should be evaluated for the "fleck sign" indicating avulsion of the Lisfranc ligament.
  10. 10. Fleck Sign
  11. 11. Classification  Homolateral  All of the metatarsals are dislocated to the same side  Usually involves the 2nd through 5th dislocated laterally  Divergent  May be associated with a fracture of the 1st cuneiform  Usually involves medial displacement of the 1st metatarsal and lateral displacement of 2nd-5th metatarsals
  12. 12. Homolateral
  13. 13. Classification  Homolateral  All of the metatarsals are dislocated to the same side  Usually involves the 2nd through 5th dislocated laterally  Divergent  May be associated with a fracture of the 1st cuneiform  Usually involves medial displacement of the 1st metatarsal and lateral displacement of 2nd-5th metatarsals
  14. 14. Divergent
  15. 15. Treatment  Depends on severity  RICE  If no dislocation--immobilize and no weight bearing for 4-8 weeks  If significant dislocation--closed reduction or ORIF
  16. 16. Complications  Chronic pain secondary to posttraumatic osteoarthritis  Repeated injuries
