The SEP test is a valid and repeatable technique which correlates with clinically assessed joint position sense and useful in predicting motor recovery of hemiplegia.

At Kyung Hee Medical Center, we studied 30 cases of Stroke about the motor recovery & SEP patterns. It has been important prognostic index whether the SEP patterns are normal or not. The results were summerrized as follows.

1) 13 patients showed normal SEP patterns. 5 of them showed no weakness and 8 of them showed mild weakness. 4 patients showed abnormal SEP pattern. 1 of them showed mild weakness, 2 of them showed moderate weakness and another one showed severe weakness. 13 patients showed absent SEP patterns. 3 of them showed mild weakness, other three showed moderate weakness and another seven showed severe weakness.

2) The results were statistically significant correlation between the normal and abnormal SEP patterns(p<0.005).

3) The SEP study is useful predicting motor recovery of stroke patients.

Key Words: Relationship, Somatosensory evoked potential, Motor recovery, Stroke, Hemiplegia
