Methods: Eight fresh foot specimens were made into the models of the first tarsometatarsal joint
fracture dislocation, which were fixed with 3.
Inclusion criteria were either professional dancers or high-level (Division I College) athletes who had been diagnosed with Lisfranc injury by way of complaints isolated to directly over the Lisfranc space and had failed conservative management after sustaining a midfoot sprain; specifically, direct point tenderness over the Lisfranc space on clinical exam, either at the first or second tarsometatarsal joint
, and either minimum of 2 mm diastasis on weightbearing plain film or suggestive signal changes on MRI, with no signal changes at the base of the second metatarsal as would be more suggestive of stress fracture.
The Lisfranc fracture-dislocation is an uncommon pedal injury involving the base first and second tarsometatarsal joint
with occasional disruption of the Lisfranc ligament.

arthrodesis for hallux valgus deformity," International Orthopaedics, vol.
In this waywe avoided fixing the tarsometatarsal joint
and calcaneocuboid joint as reported by Yu et al.
The diagnosis and treatment of injury to the tarsometatarsal joint
: ABSTRACTObjective: To summarize the functional outcome of tarsometatarsal joint
fracture-dislocation managed according to Myerson classification.
Data sources /Study selection: Data from survey reports, descriptive, cross-sectional and longitudinal studies published from 2002 to 2012 on the topic of the injuries to the fourth and fifth tarsometatarsal joint
on human and radiography studies were included.
(1,2) Tarsometatarsal joint
injuries can be severely disabling; patients may be left with post-traumatic arthritis, chronic pain, or an inability to return to previous activity levels.
