Pathological changes and their assessment in patients after cerebellar infarct

The cerebellum is a structure responsible for many important functions in human life. Cerebellar infarcts are very rare and account for a small percentage of all infarcts. Among other things, the influence of cerebellar infarct on imbalance, the ability to keep the body’s centre of gravity in a balanced position, coordination, and the impact of an infarct on dysfunctions of muscle groups involved in gait were described. Following, it is explained what tests should be performed before presenting a treatment program for post-infarct complications. The conclusions emphasised the quickest possible assessment of cerebellar infarct-related disorders and the effectiveness of pharmacological or surgical treatment and intensive rehabilitation.
