Lisfranc injury in a national hockey league player: a case report.

Tarsometatarsal joint dislocations and fracture-dislocations are uncommon injuries most frequently resulting from high-energy trauma as encountered in crush injuries, falls, and motor vehicle accidents. Although less common in athletes, this injury is being recognized with greater frequency and may carry a poor prognosis for return to high levels of competition. These injuries present a considerable challenge to orthopedic surgeons caring for athletes because of the prolonged period of recovery often required [ 1,2,5,6,12]. The literature contains descriptions of this injury in football players, gymnasts, tennis players, and track and field athletes [2,5,9]. To our knowledge, no report of such a Lisfranc injury to a hockey player has been described. This is a case report of a National Hockey League player that sustained a Lisfranc injury requiring surgical stabilization, but was able to return to elite hockey play.
