tar·so·met·a·tar·sal joints

[TA]
the three synovial joints between the tarsal and metatarsal bones, consisting of a medial joint between the first cuneiform and first metatarsal, an intermediate joint between the second and third cuneiforms and corresponding metatarsals, and a lateral joint between the cuboid and fourth and fifth metatarsals.

Lisfranc amputation - amputation of the foot at the tarsometatarsal joint, the sole being preserved to make the flap. Synonym(s): Lisfranc operation
Lisfranc dislocation
Lisfranc fracture
Lisfranc joints - the three synovial joints between the tarsal and metatarsal bones. Synonym(s): tarsometatarsal joints
Lisfranc ligaments - ligaments that pass from the cuneiform bones to the metatarsals, the one from the first cuneiform to the second metatarsal being the strongest. Synonym(s): interosseous cuneometatarsal ligaments

scalene tubercle of Lisfranc - a small spine on the inner edge of the first rib, giving attachment to the scalenus anterior muscle. Synonym(s): scalene tubercle

tarsometatarsal joints

articulations between tarsal and metatarsal bones
  • fifth tarsometatarsal joint lateral area of distal aspect of cuboid and fifth metatarsal base

  • first tarsometatarsal joint distal aspect of medial cuneiform and first metatarsal base

  • second tarsometatarsal joint distal aspect of intermediate cuneiform and second metatarsal base; movement at second tarsometatarsal joint is restricted by intermediate cuneiform mortise (into which second metatarsal base fits), and strong interosseous ligaments binding proximal areas of first and second metatarsals

  • third tarsometatarsal joint distal aspect of lateral cuneiform and third metatarsal base

  • fourth tarsometatarsal joint articulation medial area of distal aspect of cuboid and fourth metatarsal base
