Abstract

The midtarsal joint is composed of the talonavicular and calcaneocuboid joints. It is also known as the Chopart joint. Midtarsal joint fracture and dislocation are relatively rare and frequently missed or misdiagnosed. A proper understanding about the anatomy of the midtarsal joint is an essential part in comprehending the mechanism of injury and rationale for treatment. Anatomical reduction of midtarsal joint with correction of the column in length and shape are important; however, it is technically challenging and may require open procedure. Herein, we described a case of initial open reduction and internal fixation for midtarsal joint fracture and dislocation with a brief literature review.
