BACKGROUND There are 2 Level I studies comparing open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) and primary arthrodesis (PA) in high-energy Lisfranc injuries. There are no studies comparing ORIF and PA in young athletic patients with low-energy injuries. METHODS All operatively managed low-energy Lisfranc injuries sustained by active duty military personnel(More)
