The Jones Fracture—Transverse Proximal Diaphyseal Fractures of the Fifth Metatarsal: Frequency by Radiology.
1477 consecutive foot X-rays were reviewed over an 11-month period from the Lehigh Valley Hospital Center Emergency Services. 49 fifth metatarsal fractures were identified. Two transverse proximal diaphyseal fractures 3.0 cm distal from the fifth metatarsal tuberosity, the Jones fracture, were identified. The frequency of the Jones fracture in this group of fifth metatarsal fractures (n = 49) is 4%.
