Moreover, a small impression was found at the medial side, where tibialis anterior tendon inserted; a small ridge for the insertion of the interosseous ligament for the intermediate cuneiform was present at its anterolateral corner.
These surfaces were for articulating with the intermediate cuneiform, which, in contrast, showed no articular surface.
When the two fragments of the BMC are put together, they form articular surfaces for articulating with the navicular bone, first and second metatarsals and intermediate cuneiform, which do not greatly differ from the normal morphology.
One from the navicular to the dorsal piece of the BMC, and three ligaments originated at the dorsal piece of the BMC and attached to the intermediate cuneiform, the base of the second metatarsal bone and the base of the first metatarsal bone.
Additional attention was paid to check whether vassels or nerves were compacted at the fractures or articular facet before reduction to prevent the iatrogenic injuries.7###The second tarsometatarsal joint should be firstly reduced if the fracture is relatively intact 3.5 mm-cortical bone screws or 4.0 mm-cannulated screws were used to fix the intermediate cuneiform bone from the base of the second metatarsals via the second tarsometatarsal joint.
The bipartite medial cuneiform was detected by computed tomography that was performed to assess for fracture of the intermediate cuneiform. O'Neal et al (2) described the presence of a bipartite medial cuneiform in a 5-year-old boy's amputated leg.
In addition, the lateral surface of the second metatarsal base was aligned to the midpoint of the intermediate cuneiform. (See Fig.
Orthopedic consultation was obtained and patient underwent operative exploration, which demonstrated a dislocation of the first and second tarsometatarsal joints and a comminuted fracture of the medial and intermediate cuneiforms. Patient underwent open treatment with internal fixation.
