Abstract

PURPOSE : The purpose of this study is to detect the factors influencing the results of treatment for Lisfranc injuries of the foot.
MATERIALS and METHODS
: We assessed the correlation between the AOFAS Scale and each of the variables which might influence the results of treatment in 25 cases of Lisfranc injuries, using the SPSS version 7.5.
RESULTS
The mean AOFAS Scale rated 81.48 points. The degrees of initial soft tissue injury had close correlation with the AOFAS Scale; while time from injury to operation, accuracy of reduction such as the alignment of the tarsometatarsal joints, gap between the first and the second metatarsal bases, and the foot arch angles had moderate correlation with AOFAS Scale(p<0.05). The age at operation, types of fractures, joint space of the tarsometatarsal joints had little or fair degrees of correlation with the AOFAS Scale(p>0.05).
CONCLUSION
: The factorf influencing the results of treatment for Lisfranc injuries included initial deree of soft tissue injury, time form injury to operation, and variables related to the accuracy of reduction such as the alignment of tarsometatarsal joints, gap between the first and the second metatarsal bases, and the maintenance of the foot arch.
