ABSTRACT
Objectives:
This study examined the correlation between the Scandinavian Stroke Scale (SSS) and the Motricity Index (MI) in acute cerebral infarction patients.

Methods:
We studied 75 inpatients within a month after the onset of cerebral infarction; patients were recruited from July 2012 to November 2013. We analyzed the correlation between changes in SSS and MI by pattern identification.

Results:
A significant moderate positive linear correlation was noted between SSS and MI in the total patient cohort and in a Fire-heat group, Dampness-phlegm group, Qi deficiency group, and Deficiency syndrome group. A significant strong positive linear correlation existed between SSS and MI in the Excess syndrome group. The Yin deficiency group showed a weak positive linear correlation, but it was not statistically significant.

Conclusions:
This study provides evidence that the correlation between SSS and MI in acute cerebral infarction patients could differ depending on pattern identification.
Key words: cerebral infarction, Scandinavian stroke scale, Motricity index, pattern identification
