The frequency of prolonged muscular flaccidity (PMF) was examined in a series of stroke patients in chronic phase suffering from hemiplegia with minimal spontaneous recovery (MSR). The results indicated that in such a population with poor motor recovery, PMF was significantly more frequent than spasticity. PMF was found to be associated with left‐sided hemiplegia and unilateral spatial neglect. The minimal spontaneous recovery of the series of stroke patients we studied could be dependent on the interaction of three negative prognostic factors: left sided hemiplegia, unilateral spatial neglect and prolonged muscular flaccidity

Abstract

The frequency of prolonged muscular flaccidity (PMF) was examined in a series of stroke patients in chronic phase suffering from hemiplegia with minimal spontaneous recovery (MSR). The results indicated that in such a population with poor motor recovery, PMF was significantly more frequent than spasticity. PMF was found to be associated with left‐sided hemiplegia and unilateral spatial neglect. The minimal spontaneous recovery of the series of stroke patients we studied could be dependent on the interaction of three negative prognostic factors: left sided hemiplegia, unilateral spatial neglect and prolonged muscular flaccidity
