Can anyone shed some light on choosing between screw fixation vs. tight rope fixation for the repair of my Lisfranc joint? I fell and completely tore the ligament 3 months ago - typical story, ER x-rayed my foot, no fracture seen, sent me home with an Ace bandage and directions to rest/ice. Fast forward 3 months, foot pain is progressively worse and I sought out the opinion of a specialist. MRI revealed a complete rupture of my Lisfranc tendon and >2mm spread between 1st and 2cnd metatarsals. I was given the option of screw fixation or the tight rope.....any insights on this choice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks
Did you end up having surgery? If so which one? I am in same situation as you right now. 3 months post injury, doctor has given option for tightrope.
How was your recovery?
