Lisfranc dislocations: fractures and/or dislocations through the tarso-metatarsal joints.

Injury 1984 January
Because of the anatomical configuration of the tarso-metatarsal joints with their strong ligamentous connections, pure dislocations in this region are rare. We describe our experience of 24 cases of Lisfranc dislocation. Classification is according to Wilson. In the long term, functional and radiological results appear to depend on the accuracy of reduction. For good anatomical results, immediate closed or, if necessary, open reduction and stabilization by percutaneous Kirschner wires is required. Because of the severity of soft tissue damage, decompression with dorsal skin incisions should also be considered.
