3 doctors agree

In brief: CT ; r-rays

It is named after dr lisfrank during the napolionic wars, caused by soldiers who fell from their horses ; had a foot caught in the stirrup.
Nfl has quite a few of them. Usually missed or often missed due 2 the fact that they reduce themselves, ; if no fractures ; only dislocation, an MRI is needed in those cases of high suspicion.

Agree; this is a serious injury esp. for athletes. Different types of Lis-Franc injuries can occur, some requiring surgery to 'realign' the mid foot bones.If you think u have a mid- foot injury see your ORS for evaluation .

In brief: LisFranc fracture

X-rays would be taken first and if this are inconclusive, MRI would be ordered.
