The Lisfranc joint is the point at which the metatarsal bones long bones that lead up to the toes and the tarsal bones bones in the arch connect. The Lisfranc ligament is a tough band of tissue that joins two of these bones.

This is important for maintaining proper alignment and strength of the joint. Injuries to the Lisfranc joint most commonly occur in automobile accident victims, military personnel, runners, horseback riders, football players and participants of other contact sports, or something as simple as missing a step on a staircase. Lisfranc injuries occur as a result of direct or indirect forces to the foot. A direct force often involves something heavy falling on the foot. Indirect force commonly involves twisting the foot.

Lisfranc injuries are sometimes mistaken for ankle sprains, making the diagnostic process very important. To arrive at a diagnosis, the foot and ankle surgeon will ask questions about how the injury occurred and will examine the foot to determine the severity of the injury. X-rays and other imaging studies may be necessary to fully evaluate the extent of the injury.

The surgeon may also perform an additional examination while the patient is under anesthesia to further evaluate a fracture or weakening of the joint and surrounding bones. Anyone who has symptoms of a Lisfranc injury should see a foot and ankle surgeon right away. If unable to do so immediately, it is important to stay off the injured foot, keep it elevated at or slightly above hip level and apply a bag of ice wrapped in a thin towel to the area every 20 minutes of each waking hour.

These steps will help keep the swelling and pain under control. Treatment by the foot and ankle surgeon may include one or more of the following, depending on the type and severity of the Lisfranc injury:. Certain types of Lisfranc injuries require surgery. The foot and ankle surgeon will determine the type of procedure that is best suited to the individual patient.

Some injuries of this type may require emergency surgery. Complications can and often arise following Lisfranc injuries. A possible early complication following the injury is compartment syndrome, in which pressure builds up within the tissues of the foot, requiring immediate surgery to prevent tissue damage.

A buildup of pressure could damage the nerves, blood vessels and muscles in the foot. Arthritis and problems with foot alignment are very likely to develop. In most cases, arthritis develops several months after a Lisfranc injury, requiring additional treatment.

A A A Print Share. What Is the Lisfranc Joint? How Do Lisfranc Injuries Occur? Types of Lisfranc Injuries There are three types of Lisfranc injuries, which sometimes occur together: Sprains.

Oral medications. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications NSAIDs , such as ibuprofen, help reduce pain and inflammation. Ice and elevation. Swelling is reduced by icing the affected area and keeping the foot elevated, as described above. Physical therapy. After the swelling and pain have subsided, physical therapy may be prescribed.
