Denham MJ, Hodkinson HM, Wright BM. Unilateral clubbing in hemiplegia. Gerontol Clin (Basel). 1975;17(1):7-12.
A study of clubbing, assessed by spherometer measurements of fingernail-skinfold angle, was made in recent and long-established hemiplegic elderly patients. This showed that clubbing developed in all digits studied and that it increased with the duration of the stroke. Clubbing did not correlate with the grip strength of the weakened hand.
