Twenty patients of Lisfranc joint injuries managed by flouroscopic guided closed reduction and percutaneous K-Wire fixation were evaluated for functional results with average follow up of 24 months. Males were 80% of total cases and road traffic accident represented cause of injury in 55% cases rest being due to fall. Majority of injuries were type B as per Myersons classification. The average AOFAS-M score was 78 with 80% patients returning to their original occupation. Early flouroscopic guided closed redusction and K-Wire stabilization of Lisfranc injuries is effective easy and reliable method of Lisfranc joint injury treatment with no secondary surgical procedure needed for implant removal and no cosmetic problem of scar formation
