Rehabilitation outcome of patients with dual disability of hemiplegia and amputation

, : Rehabilitation outcome of patients with dual disability of hemiplegia and amputation. Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 59(3): 121-123

The records of 30 patients with the dual disability of hemiplegia and amputation were reviewed. Six factors noted to have influenced the success of rehabilitation were: (1) age; (2) sequence of onset of disability, whether amputation or hemiplegia first; (3) localization of dual disability, whether ipsilateral or contralateral; (4) side of hemiplegia; (5) level of amputation; (6) availability of prolonged hospital stay and training. The final functional status was better if: (1) the amputation preceded the CVA; (2) the amputation and hemiplegia were ipsilateral; (3) amputation and hemiplegia were both on the right side. The hospital stay of patients with dual disability ranged from 4 months to 1 year. Those who had disability on contralateral sides and those who had left hemiplegia required a more prolonged hospital stay.
