Abstract

This study evaluates the midterm outcomes of Lisfranc injuries in adolescents operatively treated with Kirschner wire or screw fixation. Eight adolescent patients with Lisfranc injuries operatively treated in a single institution were included in this study. The mean duration of follow-up was 3.8 years. Analysis of radiographs with respect to the degree of initial displacement and final reduction was carried out in terms of the intermetatarsal distances. All cases were scored functionally using the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society Midfoot Scale. We concluded that most operatively treated cases of adolescent Lisfranc injuries will do well at the midterm follow-up, with a mean American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society Midfoot score of 93.4. Level of Evidence: Level 4 (Case series).
