Anatomic reduction and internal fixation of these fractures is usually required to restore forearm rotation, elbow and wrist motion, grip strength. The objective of the study is to know the functional outcome, union time and complications of treating diaphyseal fractures both bones forearm with locking compression plates.</p> <p><strong>Methods: </strong>A prospective study was done among 30 patients presenting to department of Orthopaedics in a tertiary referral centre who were diagnosed clinically and radiologically as both bone forearm fracture and those meeting the criteria of the study. The patients were treated with open reduction and internal fixation with locking compression plate and the results was evaluated on the basis of fracture union, range of motion and complications.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The study showed excellent elbow range of motion in 60% cases and satisfactory outcome in 40% of cases while range of motion of forearm was excellent in 83.3% of cases and satisfactory in 16.7% cases. Sixteen patients achieved union at 16 weeks, two cases united &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;before 24 weeks and in one patient union were achieved after 24 weeks. Minimum union time was found to be 16 weeks and maximum time was 25 weeks. Mean union time was found to be 16.8 weeks.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Open reduction and internal fixation with Locking Compression Plate provides excellent functional outcome.</p> Anubhav Rijal Santosh Thapa ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2020-02-01 2020-02-01 7 12 Tarsometatarsal Lisfranc Injuries: A Diagnostic Challenge <p><strong>Introduction:</strong> Lisfranc injuries are often difficult to diagnose and treat causing long term disability without proper management. Lisfranc injuries refer to bony or ligamentous compromise of the tarsometatarsal and intercuneiform joint complex. Improper treatment of these fractures might lead to negative outcomes such as soft tissue necrosis, posttraumatic arthritis and arch abnormalities. This study aims to help in diagnosis and treatment of tarsometatarsal Lisfranc injuries.</p> <p><strong>Materials and Methods:</strong> Study comprises of 10 patients diagnosed with Lisfranc injury. All of them were treated with open reduction and internal fixation. Post-operatively, all patients were assessed using AOFAS midfoot scale for outcome after the surgery and scores were recorded at each follow up and final results were evaluated after 1 year of surgery.</p> <p><strong>Observation and Results:</strong> Mean AOFAS midfoot score was 82 at the end of one year. Majority of the patients had AOFAS score of more than 80. Majority of patients had B2 type of fracture according to Meyerson Classification.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion:</strong> Anatomical reduction is the key for the treatment of lisfranc injuries, therefore, open reduction and internal fixation is necessary to provide good outcome.</p> Nitin Patil Amit Garud S.
