Abstract

One hundred and twenty-seven patients with femour fractures were studied with the aim of verifying the possible influence of Parkinson's disease and hemiplegia on ambulation recovery. Participating in this study were 31 patients with Parkinson's disease, 36 patients with hemiplegia and 60 patients without any neurological damage. After rehabilitation, 61.1% of hemiplegic, 40% patients without neurological damage and 29% of parkinson disease patients reached the same ambulation capacity level present before the fracture. Patients suffering from Parkinson disease showed an important loss of ambulation which was statistically significant compared to the control group. The loss of deambulatory capacity was not statistically significant in hemiplegic group. According to the authors' opinion, this result depends on correlated damages or on poor collaboration typically present in patients with Parkinson disease.
