Chapter 21 Video 1: Lisfranc Injuries in the Elite Athlete

January 23, 2017

Contributors: Robert B Anderson, MD

Foot and ankle problems account for over 20% of the sports medicine injuries seen on the field of play, yet understanding of these problems is often limited to the fellowship trained foot and ankle surgeon. The primary objective of this symposia is to discuss the most common problems seen on field, the management of these problems, and the most advanced treatment options. This video discusses the significance of a Lisfranc injury to the midfoot in elite athletes. Incidence is discussed, and the indirect mechanism is discussed. This is primarily a twisting injury as opposed to axial loading or a contact injury. An open surgical approach is recommended over a percutaneous one, solid screws are recommended over cannulated, and bridge plates are recommended. Rehabilitation is discussed.
