Plantar Plate Repair

A Weil osteotomy is performed allowing the capital fragment to be recessed up to 1 cm under the metatarsal.  Digital distraction is obtained using a distraction clamp over K-wires. The plantar plate is assessed and repaired using suture.  Arthrex has developed a novel suture passing hand instrument known as the Mini Scorpion DX.  This device allows the surgeon to pass suture through the plantar plate. The plantar plate is repaired back to the proximal phalanx. Through the CPR system, surgeons now have the option to repair the primary pathology, the plantar plate itself using a dorsal approach.
