ND14.4/S93 Dislocation of tarsometatarsal joint



Dislocation of the tarsometatarsal joint is caused by a traumatic force that is strong enough to cause the bones in the joint to move out of their normal alignment. It can also be caused by repetitive stress or an underlying medical condition such as an infection or arthritis.


Diagnosis of a tarsometatarsal joint dislocation can be made through physical examination, imaging tests such as X-rays or MRIs, and laboratory testing.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis for a tarsometatarsal joint dislocation includes other joint dislocations, fractures, soft tissue injuries, and arthritic conditions.


Treatment for a tarsometatarsal joint dislocation typically includes reducing the joint back into place, immobilizing the joint with a cast or splint, and providing physical therapy to strengthen the joint and improve range of motion.


Prognosis for a tarsometatarsal joint dislocation is typically good with proper treatment and rehabilitation. Full recovery of the joint can take several months.
