A Lisfranc fracture is a fracture and a dislocation of the joints in the middle of the foot. Usually this type of fracture will require surgical intervention to help prevent long-term arthritis of the midfoot.
Treatment of foot and ankle fractures
Every fracture injury should be evaluated to ensure appropriate treatment. Tests such as an x-ray, bone scan or MRI may be required in order to assess the extent of the fracture.
Treatment of fractures in the foot and ankle usually involve immobilisation for several weeks to assist with healing. However, the specific treatment program recommended will depend on the nature and severity of the fracture injury.
