Foot Ankle Clin. 2003 Mar;8(1):61-71. doi: 10.1016/s1083-7515(03)00003-2.

Abstract

Injuries to the Lisfranc complex are fairly common. Delayed treatment or missed diagnosis of these injuries can lead to significant complications. Non-operative treatment and salvage surgery can help to relieve sequelae that are associated with tarsometatarsal arthritis following traumatic injury.
