Abstract

The main post-polio syndrome (PPS) symptoms are new-onset weakness, new-onset atrophy, fatigue, cold intolerance, and pain associated with sleep disturbances. The polysomnographic study is the gold pattern to analyze sleep disorders.

OBJECTIVE:

To assess pain, intolerance to cold and periodic limb movements (PLM) index before and after the use of MIG3 bioceramic fabrics over 4 weeks.

METHOD:

12 patients with PPS from UNIFESP/EPM. All patients were submitted to polysomnography and infra-red examinations with answered scales of pain and intolerance to cold before and after the use of MIG3 bioceramics fabrics.

RESULTS:

There were significant decreases in pain and PLM index.

CONCLUSION:

MIG3 bioceramic fabrics can help in the treatment of pain and PLM in PPS patients.
