Abstract

Injuries of the Lisfranc joint are among the more prevailingly missed diagnosis of midfoot injuries. This is more so when there is only subtle disruption of the joint. However, open Lisfranc fracture dislocation which is associated with high velocity injuries requires surgical intervention to restore the congruency of the tarsometatarsal joint. We present a case of a young gentleman who sustained an open fracture-dislocation of the Lisfranc joint which was treated surgically with fixation of the joint for better longterm outcome.
