Skeletal muscle changes were evaluated in patients suffering from hemiparesis after stroke. Concentric needle EMG and single fiber EMG of the paretic gastrocnemius medialis muscle were performed. Maximal amplitude of H, T and M responses in calf muscles of both the affected and the unaffected sides were determined by usual electrophysiological techniques. Muscle biopsy of the lateral gastrocnemius muscle of the affected side was performed to determine the distribution of fiber types and fiber… CONTINUE READING
