Lisfranc Fracture Repair

What Is A Lisfranc Fracture Repair?

If the ligaments are completely torn and the bones are dislocated out of position, surgery is needed to realign the bones and ligaments. Without surgery, arthritis is very likely to occur within a few years. Wires, pins, or screws may be used.

If a Lisfranc injury is present, the treatment depends upon the bony alignment. If the bones are where they are supposed to be, treatment in a non-walking cast for 6 weeks may be enough. It’s important to remember that close follow-up is needed in case the bones shift in position. If the initial alignment is poor, surgery may be needed to place a screw across the injury to keep the bones in place.
