A Systematic Review of Plantar Plate Repair in the Management of Lesser Metatarsophalangeal Joint Instability

The plantar plate is a major structure that maintains metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ) stability and has only recently gained attention. Anatomic plantar plate repair can directly address the pathologic entity, rather than relying on indirect reduction of the MTPJ instability by osteotomy or tendon transfer techniques
