Study of Treatment of Lisfranc Injuries

2016-11-03 08:08:21 | BioPortfolio


This trial is designed to compare different treatments on Lisfranc fractures. The trial consist of 2 different strata. Stratum 1: In mild injuries the comparison is between conservative treatment and operative treatment with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF). Stratum 2: In severe injuries the comparison is between operative treatment with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) and primary arthrodesis. The primary outcome measure will be AOFAS Midfoot Score, and secondary outcome measure will be VAS Foot and Ankle.


The aim of this study is to find out the most effective way to treat Lisfranc injuries
