metatarsophalangeal articulations or joints (MTP)
Explanation:
The joints between the metatarsals and the proximal phalanges are called the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joints. Each digit also has two interphalangeal (IP) joints, proximal (PIP) and distal (DIP), except for the big toe, which has only one IP joint. Each MTP and IP joint is bound together by several ligaments,one on each side of the joint (medial and lateral collateral ligaments), and one along the plantar (sole) surface (plantar ligament).
