Continuum of Care: Plantar Plate Deformity

Plantar plate injury is a progressive deformity that requires a different surgical solution for each stage. Ryan B. Rigby, DPM (Logan, UT), discusses Arthrex’s family of plantar plate solutions and provides guidance on which systems are best for each grade of tear.

The InternalBrace surgical technique is intended only to augment the primary repair/reconstruction by expanding the area of tissue approximation during the healing period and is not intended as a replacement for the native ligament. The InternalBrace technique is for use during soft tissue-to-bone fixation procedures and is not cleared for bone-to-bone fixation.
