Lisfranc Fracture Dislocation (Midfoot) - Podiatry
Lisfranc fractures can cause pain when you stand. You may not be able to stand on your foot or walk. Your foot may swell and bruise. Your foot may appear wider than usual. A Lisfranc fracture is commonly mistaken for a sprained foot.
Your podiatrist will review your medical history and conduct an examination. You will be asked to move or position your foot so your doctor can see how it is functioning. Imaging studies such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans are used to confirm the fracture location and identify dislocated bones.
