high incidence of cerebral stroke (CS) determines the great social importance of this problem [1–5]. More than five million people die every year from CS; in most countries, stroke is the second or third most common cause of death [6]. CS has an important role as a cause of population disability – less than 20% of people who have had CS are able to return(More)
Inhibition of the soleus H-reflex was studied in hemiparetic postapoplectic patients and in control group of patients without motor disorders. The depression of H-reflex was caused by stimulation of ipsilateral peroneal nerve and presented in two successive waves (D1 and D2). The former of them corresponds to presynaptic inhibition. The size of both waves(More)
A new classification of motor disorders in patients after brain hemisphere's stroke as well as with its sequelae was proposed on the basis of clinical electromyographic studies. The classification validity was confirmed by mathematic statistic methods. The classification was composed of motor syndromes and is based on the following criteria: the severity of(More)
Homosynaptic depression of H-reflex was studied in 25 healthy persons and 33 patients with hemiplegia. The mean duration of the homosynaptic depression in healthy persons was 5200 ms. After the initial relative facilitation the time course of the homosynaptic depression corresponded to a logarithmic function of the interval between the conditioning and(More)
Correlation between clinical structure of motor deficit and indices of stimulation electromyography was studied in 108 patients with hemispheric stroke. Methods of statistic analysis were applied including devising of histograms, Pareto diagrams, determination of the narrowness of correlation ratio. The analysis revealed complex relationship between the(More)
Stimulation electromyography was used to study inhibition of the soleus muscle H-reflex induced by stimulation of the common peroneal nerve in healthy individuals and in patients who had underwent cerebral apoplexy. Two successive inhibition waves (D1 and D2) were recorded; the first wave demonstrated the development of presynaptic inhibition of group Ia(More)
