16 Possible Causes for Circumduction Gait, Clonus

  • Stroke

    Focal seizures were distinguished clinically from clonus, spasms, and recurrent strokes. 8 9 Electroencephalograms were not routinely performed.[doi.org]

  • Pyramidal Tract Lesion

    In a patient with clonus, a muscle stretch elicits alternating contractions of agonist and antagonist muscle groups.[courses.washington.edu] Spastic hemiparesis of the contralateral side, augmented DTR's, loss of abdominal cremastic reflexes, Babinski reflex, clonus.[brainscape.com] There is hypertonia (increased muscle tone, stiffness), hyperreflexia (exaggerated reflexes), and an oscillatory movement known as clonus.[courses.washington.edu]

  • Hemiplegia

    Features other than weakness include decreased movement control, clonus (a series of involuntary rapid muscle contractions), spasticity, exaggerated deep tendon reflexes and[en.wikipedia.org] With mild hemiparesis, loss of normal arm swing and slight circumduction may be the only abnormalities.[web.archive.org] Diplegic Gait Patients have involvement on both sides with spasticity in lower extremities worse than upper extremities.[web.archive.org]

  • Spastic Paraplegia

    If the patient can walk, look for a spastic gait with bilateral circumduction described as “scissoring”, and whilst they are standing inspect the spine for scars.[ptpaces.wordpress.com] This case showed spasticity and hyperreflexia with pathological reflexes and ankle clonus as well as muscle weakness in all extremities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The knee-jerk is excessive and ankle-clonus is easily obtained.[henriettes-herb.com]

  • Cerebral Palsy with Spastic Diplegia

    During testing we observed clonus only in gastrocnemius and soleus muscles.[omicsonline.org] The subject demonstrated improvements in left hip and knee flexion and decreased left hip abduction and circumduction during gait after three weeks of IMOT.[pediastaff.com] Signs & symptoms (spastic) Hypertonia Exaggerated reflexes & ve barbinskis Clonus Poor voluntary movement Scissoring gait Low intelligence & loss ofmemory Epilepsy[slideshare.net]

  • Benedict Syndrome

    The hemiparetic gait is also characteristic with foot drop causing circumduction as the involved leg is swung out and forward before the next step.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Paraparesis

    On examination, she was found to have severe spasticity and weakness of both legs and feet, bilateral Babinski sign, and bilateral patellar clonus (see video ).[nejm.org] If the patient can walk, look for a spastic gait with bilateral circumduction described as “scissoring”, and whilst they are standing inspect the spine for scars.[ptpaces.wordpress.com] Spastic weakness is characterized by increased muscle stretch reflexes, strong leg recoil to a sudden intense pull, and sustained ankle clonus.[pediatricneuro.com]

  • Infantile Hemiplegia

    The knee-jerk and ankle clonus may be present. Post-hemiplegic movements consist of tremors, choreiform movements, and athetosis. Diagnosis .[henriettes-herb.com] "Never give up" E- Gait training: Circumduction gait is the way that a hemiplegic patient walks. this is an incorrect way for walk.Gait training must start depend on this[your-pt.blogspot.com] Atrophy of the muscles, especially of the arm, is quite marked.Epilepsy is a frequent result, especially when the hemiplegia is from birth.The knee-jerk and ankle clonus may[medigoo.com]

  • Bilateral Leg Weakness

    […] generally flexors weaker than extensors in the legs and the reverse in the arms - pyramidal pattern of weakness), increased reflexes, an up-going plantar response and sustained clonus[ole.bris.ac.uk] Look for circumduction of the leg or diminished swing of the arm. A waddling or lordotic gait occurs with chronic muscle weakness Coordination.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu] Gait: Watch a patient walk! This is often the easiest way to demonstrate a hemiparesis from an upper motor neuron lesion.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]

  • Hemiparesis

    […] button, hold a pen etc Present to the examiner: This patient has a left hemiparesis as evidenced by: Increased tone Pronator drift Pyramidal weakness Increased reflexes Clonus[medicaleducationleeds.com] With mild hemiparesis, loss of normal arm swing and slight circumduction may be the only abnormalities.[web.archive.org] Features other than weakness include decreased movement control, clonus (a series of involuntary rapid muscle contractions), spasticity, exaggerated deep tendon reflexes and[en.wikipedia.org]
