plantar plate

plantar plate

tough, rectangular, fibrocartilaginous structure overlying plantar aspects of metatarsophalangeal joints (MTPJs); formed from distal parts of plantar aponeurosis and plantar aspects of MTPJ capsules; functions to reduce load on plantar aspects of the MTPJs, stabilize associated digit, guide pull of tendons inserting into associated digits, serves as a point of attachment for distal part of plantar fascia and resists MTPJ hyperextension at toe off
