Google Trend 21 mar 08: Lisfranc joint

Jacques Lisfranc (1790-1847) was a field surgeon in Napoleon's army serving on the Russian front. He wrote about a new amputation technique between the forefoot and midfoot. This route became known as the Lisfranc joint. A Lisfranc injury encompasses everything from a sprain to a complete fracture/dislocation through this joint.
