HYPERHIDROSIS / RESULTS
Hyperhidrosis - Excessive perspiration


VIDEOTHORACOSCOPY THORACIC SYMPATHECTOMY RESULTS
The patient already leaves the surgery room with dry face, palms and/or axillas. The results were classified in: EXCELLENT (completely dry region); GOOD (discreet perspiration), FAIR (partial improvement of perspiration) and POOR (no improvement). The following table shows results of several authors, including ours.

Medical literature shows that 94-100% of palmar and /or axillar hyperhidrosis are permanently healed.

Concerning Hyperhidrosis Palmar 99,5% and Craniofacial 90,9%, we attained excellent and good results. For
Hyperhidrosis Axillar 90,7%, the results were good and excellent.

REMARK
Some authors explain that Axillar Hyperhidrosis lower percentages of therapeutic success (90,7%) are due to the fact that axillar region has 90% of eccrine sweat glands and 10% apocrine sweat glands. The eccrine are sympathetic dependent, so when the sympathectomy is done they stop secreting sweat. The apocrine are not sympathetic stimulated, so they are not influenced by sympathectomy.

Small incisions and a proper treatment of surgical incisions – intradermal sutures – help to obtain an excellent esthetical result.
