Jones Fracture Wheeless

- involves fracture at base of fifth metatarsal at metaphyseal-diaphyseal junction, which typically extends into the 4-5 intermetatarsal facet;
- Jones fracture is located w/in 1.5 cm distal to tuberosity of 5th metatarsal & should not be confused w/ more common avulsion fracture of 5th metatarsal styloid;

Lisfranc Fracture Dislocation eMedicine Orthopedics

Jacques Lisfranc (1790-1847) was a field surgeon in Napoleon's army serving on the Russian front. He wrote about a new amputation technique to treat forefoot gangrene from frostbite. This technique involved a route following a series of joints to avoid having to take the time to cut through bone. This route became known as the Lisfranc joint. However, Lisfranc did not actually describe the injury pattern well known by this eponym.
Although the amputation technique survives, the term is used today to describe a wide spectrum of traumatic injuries to this distinct area of the foot. A Lisfranc injury encompasses everything from a sprain to a complete disruption of normal anatomy through these joints. Early recognition and treatment of this injury are important to preserve normal foot function.

Lisfranc Midfoot Fracture Patient Information AAOS

Lisfranc injuries occur at the midfoot, where a cluster of small bones forms an arch on top of the foot between the ankle and the toes. From this cluster, five long bones (metatarsals) extend to the toes. The second metatarsal also extends down into the row of small bones and acts as a stabilizing force. The bones are held in place by connective tissues (ligaments) that stretch both across and down the foot. However, there is no connective tissue holding the first metatarsal to the second metatarsal. A twisting fall can break or shift (dislocate) these bones out of place.

Lisfranc's Fracture Tarsometatarsal Injuries Wheeless

mechanism:
- because 2nd metatarsal is the longest metatarsal proximally, it will often be fractured at its base, with the other metatarsals dislocated;
- dorsal capsule of Lisfranc's joint, lacking sufficient reinforcement, will fail to support the load and will collapse, resulting in dorsal fracture dislocation of the metatarsal bases;

Metatarsal Fractures eMedicine

Fractures in the foot are common, and the metatarsals are among the bones most commonly fractured. The injury may be an acute fracture, which is usually due to dropping of heavy objects on foot, or due to a stress fracture secondary to abnormal repetitive trauma in normal bone. Alternatively, a foot fracture can be an insufficiency fracture due to normal stress on a deficient bone.

Metatarsal Stress Fracture eMedicine

With an increase in public interest in physical fitness, clinical practitioners are diagnosing stress fractures with greater frequency.1 First described by Aristotle in 200 BC, stress fractures were initially recorded in the medical literature in 1855 by the Prussian military physician Breithaupt, who described what is now known as a march fracture, or stress fracture of the metatarsals.
