CPR™ Complete Plantar Plate Repair
The CPR, or Complete Plantar Plate Repair System, treats plantar plate tears and attenuation from a dorsal incision. The CPR Micro SutureLassos™ and Mini Scorpion™ DX provide suture passing options in the plantar plate, while the Mini Joint Distractor aids in visualization and access to the confined space. The surgical treatment that we describe reconstructs the anatomic structure that leads to the instability of the second MTP joint. A plantar plate repair and lateral soft tissue reefing can restore the normal alignment of the joint with anatomic repair.
