Forty-one patients (29 males and 12 females, average age 63) were evaluated 21 months on the average after sustaining a first stroke, regarding their plegic shoulder condition. The evaluation consisted on a shoulder plain X-ray, electromyography and nerve conduction tests and clinical examination (muscle tone, passive and active movements, pain and limb function). The results showed that a positive evolution can be expected almost two years after the stroke provided the patients are properly handled, the shoulder supported and that further physical therapy is delivered after discharge from rehabilitation.
