Lisfranc fracture dislocations of the foot

A 48 year-old male was involved in a high speed car accident and sustained a mid-foot injury. Radiographs revealed a Lisfranc fracture-dislocation.

He was referred to Dr. David L. Helfet, MD at the Orthopaedic Trauma Service of the Hospital for Special Surgery for definitive management. The Lisfranc fracture-dislocation was reduced and fixed through a minimally invasive technique with placement of multiple screws.

He most recently returned for routine follow-up at 3 months and radiographs illustrate a healing Lisfranc fracture dislocation and he has resumed all activities of daily living with significant improvement of pain and swelling.
