Flaccid Arm....
by: Anonymous

Question Patient is 78 years old, and had a right side hemorrhagic stroke 5 months ago. Left arm is still completely flaccid with no movement at all, but left leg works at about 50% of the right leg. Is there any hope that some movement will return to the left arm?

Is there a link between hemorrhagic stroke and flaccid limbs? I see several people here mentioning them, and they are rare compared to clots.

Answer: I haven't read any studies regarding the incidence of hemiplegia/flaccidity for hemorrhagic stroke versus ischemic stroke so I can't say if it is more prevalent in one versus the other. The determining factor in whether one has paralysis is what part of the brain is affected not the type of stroke.
