Are both of these sentences correct? Do both of these sentences have the same meaning?

1. She suffered a stroke, which left her with hemiplegia.
2. She suffered a stroke, leaving her with hemiplegia.

Yes, they do.
No.1 uses a subordinate clause.
No. 2 uses a participial phrase.

I would put a comma after stroke in both.

Ragan, please don't edit post #1 after receiving responses. It makes some of the responses appear nonsensical.
