Summary:  We prove some noncommutative analogues of a theorem proved by Plotkin and Rudin about isometries between subspaces of $L_p$-spaces. Let $p$ a finite positive number, $p$ not an even integer. The main result of this paper states that in the category of unital subspaces of noncommutative probability $L_p$-spaces, under some boundedness condition, the unital completely isometric maps come from $*$-isomorphisms of the underlying von Neumann algebras. Some applications are given, including to noncommutative $H^p$-spaces.
