Lisfranc dislocation and associated metatarsophalangeal joint dislocations. A case report and literature review

Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ). 1996 Apr;25(4):305-9.


A case report of a 28-year-old man with associated dislocations of the tarsometatarsal (Lisfranc) and metatarsophalangeal joints is presented. The potential for disability after these injuries is very high when the diagnosis or treatment is delayed, the reduction is incomplete, or the dislocation recurs. Relevant aspects of diagnosis and treatment are discussed.
