  • Description: Background: In the post-stroke period, arthropathies of paretic limbs are frequently seen. They may lead to formation of contractures, with significant limitation of active and passive movements due to severe pain in affected joints. This can hinder restoration of motor functions and consequently lead to a dramatic deterioration of quality of life.Aim: To study phenomenology of a post-stroke arthropathic syndrome and specific types of joint abnormalities.Materials and methods: The study included 148 patients with post-stroke hemiparesis. In all patients we analyzed demographic characteristics, stroke type, localization and size, absence or presence of concurrent circulatory encephalopathy and diabetes mellitus. A full neurologic examination was done with assessment of a degree of motor dysfunction. Pathogenetic subtypes of ischemic strokes were determined by means of duplex scanning of major head arteries, assessment of blood rheology and lipid profile. Assessment of joints was...
