Learning objectives: The objectives of this presentation are: To become familiar with normal anatomy of Lisfranc ligament (educational illustrations)   To present ultrasound scanning technique and high-quality ultrasound images.   To become familiar with typical mechanisms of injuries of Lisfranc ligament &n[...]

Background: The Lisfranc ligament extends obliquely between the dorso-lateral aspect of the first (medial) cuneiform to the dorso-medial aspect of the second metatarsal base. It plays a major role in stabilization of the tarsometatarsal joints and is often injured in high-force plantofelxion trauma. Complicatio[...]

Findings and procedure details: The Lisfranc ligament extends obliquely between the dorso-lateral aspect of the first (medial) cuneiform to the dorso-medial aspect of the second metatarsal base.       This ligament can be easily visualized and evaluated using Ultrasound. Probe should be placed transversally  [...]

Conclusion: - Lisfranc ligament plays an important role in stabilization of tarsometatarsal joints. - It is a superficial linear structure, convenient to visualize in ultrasound examination.   Therfore, ultrasonography can play a role in the assessment of posttraumatic midfoot pain and reliably exclude o[...]
