Aim and methods. Lisfranc joint lesions are often caused by high energy impact and tarso-metatarsal dislocations are often unknown. The most important radiological aspect to evalue at x-ray studies is the continuity of the II metatarsal bone with the profile of the II cuneiformis bone. T.C. study confirms the diagnosis. The reconstruction of anatomy and articoular stability is important for the functional outcome which is often complicated by deformity, lost of movement and pain. The gold standard is the open reduction and internal fixation with K-wires or screws trought a single trasversal or double longitudinal dorsal access.
Results and conclusion. According to these criteria, we have obtained good or optimal results in 80% of cases at 7 year-follow-up.
