Abstract

The midfoot is a complex association of five bones and many articulations between the forefoot metatarsals and the talus and calcaneus, which make up the hindfoot. These anatomic relationships are connected and restrained by an even more complex network of ligaments, capsules, and fascia, which must function as a unit to provide normal and painless locomotion. The common eponyms of Lisfranc and Chopart refer to the distal and proximal joint relationships of the midfoot, respectively. Midfoot injuries range from single ligament strains to complicated fracture-dislocations involving multiple bones and joints. To provide best outcomes for patients, it is important to understand the anatomy and the mechanical function of the midfoot; to review the epidemiology, mechanism, and classification of injuries encountered in an orthopaedic clinical practice; and to review the principles, indications, and surgical techniques for managing midfoot fractures and dislocations.
