American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) midfoot score calculator
About the score:
Originally published in 1994 in Foot and Ankle International, the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) Midfoot Rating System is a standardized evaluation of the clinical status of the midfoot.
It incorporates both subjective and objective information. Patients report their pain, and physicians assess alignment. The patient and physician work together to complete the functional portion. Scores range from 0 to 100, with a healthy midfoot receiving 100 points.
This score may be used to assess the intercuneiform, lateral cuneiform-cuboid, naviculocuneiform, and tarsometatarsal levels and may be useful for fractures and arthrodesis procedures.
