Successful lisfranc

Just wanted to post a positive lisfranc story because all of the ones I seemed to find were not very encouraging. My son came home from a holiday work party on January 10, 2010 with what he thought was a broken foot. I told him to go to bed and we would see how it was in the morning. By morning it was VERY swollen and the arch was black. After several Dr. appts. we were told it was a possible lisfranc and sent to a doctor at University of PA ( Dr. Wen Chao)
She diagnosed it as a lisfranc after a CTscan and MRI. He had surgery on Jan. 25 (two screws) and was in a hard cast for 6 weeks. He had very little pain with the surgery or after. He said some throbbing but nothing bad. Now after 6 weeks he has gotten the hard cast off and is walking fine in a boot. He isn't really an athlete so we weren't worried about running or anything right away. He has done very well, but I am sure all cases are different.

Re: Successful lisfranc

Good for him!! I'm happy that he did so well and is on the way to recovery. It seems like he is quite "young" so this will help him greatly the rest of his life. I was in my 50's when I did mine and it was very scarey!! I'm sure that the procedure has improved over the years and that his doctor was up on the latest. Hopefully he continues to heal and do well. Good luck.

Re: Successful lisfranc

i was wondering if anyone has heard anything about the bioavailable screws that some surgeons are using for lisfranc surgeries? I broke 4 bones, and have to choose between surgery with or without the bioavailable screws or fusion. I got two very different opinions from different docs.
