Abstract

Lisfranc amputations have fallen out of favor due to a reputation for late equinovarus deformity, recurrent ulceration, and prosthetic difficulties. This reputation is largely unfounded. Amputation at this level, when combined with attachment of the peroneus brevis tendon to the cuboid, can provide patients with a viable, plantigrade weight-bearing surface and decreased energy cost of ambulation.
