Evolution of Foot Fracture/Ligament Fixation – Lisfranc

Suture bridge and other suspensory fixation methods typically refer to constructs that consist of a very strong piece of suture between two different structures. In the case of Lisfranc injuries this suture bridge holds the medial cuneiform and second metatarsal together. The suture bridge itself can be held in place with either a metal plate sitting against the bone or with a screw in the bone. Suture bridge constructs are very versatile, and can be used in a number of ligament and tendon reconstructions as well as bony fixation.
