Abstract

Severe Lisfranc's joint fracture-dislocations achieve 5% to 20% of poor results after an excellent reduction. Poor results increase if the quality of the initial reduction is poor. Schematically, sequels of Lisfranc's joint fracture-dislocations are due to: no reduction or redisplacement after anatomical reduction, in acutely treated patients; development of symptomatic degenerative changes; development of pathological foot-pressure distribution. Elderly patients with local or general conditions contraindicating surgery, may improve the function of their foot by orthotic treatment. Otherwise surgery is the treatment of choice to provide an acceptable clinical result.
