A Lisfranc injury can be a devastating injury in athletes, and if inadequately treated, may lead to chronic pain and loss of function. The purpose of this study was to determine the rate and time until return to sport after surgical fixation for a ligamentous Lisfranc injury. We hypothesized that open reduction and screw fixation of a ligamentous Lisfranc injury can be a successful treatment in the athletic population and allow patients to return to sport at close to their preinjury level of play.
