BACKGROUND Isolated medial cuneiform fracture is a rare but diagnostically challenging condition. Diagnostic delay in these cases may lead to delays in ideal treatment approaches and prolonged symptoms. An understanding of clinical presentation is needed to expedite diagnosis, facilitate decision making, and guide treatment approach. METHODS Case studies/series were searched in four databases until September 2019. Included studies had participants with a history of traumatic closed medial…

Non-traumatic isolated medial cuneiform fracture: A unique mechanism of a rare injury

A 23-year-old woman who sustained a stress fracture to the medial cuneiform is reported, which was discovered soon after the injury and was non-displaced, and at 6-month follow up had returned to all pre-injury activities with no complaints.

Fracture of the lateral cuneiform only: a rare foot injury.

It is believed that in suspected cases with negative radiographic findings, further imaging should be requested, and many fractures may be misdiagnosed as ankle sprains or foot contusions, and patients may be discharged from the hospital.

Isolated Fracture of the Medial CuneiformA Case Report.

Treatment consisted of primary arthrodesis of the first tarsometatarsal joint due to a high degree of comminution and intra-articular pain and conservative treatment is usually successful in achieving osseous fusion.

Isolated Medial Cuneiform Fracture: A Special Forces Soldier with a Rare Injury

This report describes a case of isolated medial cuneiform fracture in a 26-year-old Special Forces soldier that resulted in a significant delay of diagnosis.

Categorization of single cuneiform fractures and investigation of related injuries: A 10-year retrospective study

The single medial cuneiform fracture was associated with various types of foot injuries including Lisfranc injury, naviculo-cuneiform joint dislocation, or calcaneo-cuboidal dislocation.

Isolated medial cuneiform fracture: a commonly missed fracture

In the physical examination of the limping patient, tenderness was observed during palpation in the medial tarsal region of the right foot and the MR images revealed an ‘soft tissue injury’.

Nonunion of the Medial Cuneiform: A Rare Case

This case presented here is a 62-year-old male patient who had an isolated medial cuneiform fracture resulting from the impact of a falling metal object, and Conservative treatment was performed initially.

Update on diagnosis and management of cuboid fractures

An update on diagnosis and management of cuboid fractures is presented and the treatment depends on the particular fracture characteristics.

Fracture of a Bipartite Medial Cuneiform Synchondrosis

A bipartition and occult growth plate fracture in the medial cuneiform of a 5-year, 11-month-old traumatic amputee demonstrates that radiographic discontinuity often does not correspond to anatomic discontinuity and should not be misdiagnosed as an osseous fracture.

Is Pes Cavus Alignment Associated With Lisfranc Injuries of the Foot?

A mixed modeling analysis to control for potential cofounding variables and determine if there was an association of Lisfranc injury with the talo-first metatarsal angle and the talonavicular angle showed patients were associated with a higher talar head coverage and a greater talonvicular angle than control subjects.
