Subtalar, chopart, and lisfranc joint degeneration

Book Section

Arthritis of the foot is a frequent source of chronic pain and disability in both recreational and competitive athletes that prompts presentation to the foot and ankle surgeon. Causes of arthritis are multiple and generally include primary degenerative, inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions. In the athlete, injury during play, either acute or from overuse, contributes to the majority of cases of symptomatic joint degeneration. In the foot, the subtalar, chopart, and Lisfranc joints can be particularly troublesome later in the athlete's life due to the constant forces placed across these joints. The focus of this chapter will be on the evaluation and management of subtalar, chopart, and Lisfranc degenerative joint disease (DJD).
