OBJECTIVE Until the present moment, the lack of efficient therapeutic options available for hyperhidrosis treatment in obese patients has left this population without prospect of clinical or quality of life (QOL) improvements. Outcomes of oxybutynin treatment for overweight and obese patients with hyperhidrosis are unknown. This study aims to investigate(More)
BACKGROUND Axillary hyperhidrosis (AH) is a common disease, with a significant impact on quality of life (QOL). Good short-term results are reported with oxybutynin, but longer follow-up data are lacking. We evaluated its effectiveness in a large series of patients who were not surgically treated and who had at least 6 months of follow-up. METHODS From(More)
The effects of oxybutynin for treating hyperhidrosis in children are still unknown. Therefore the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of oxybutynin on improving symptoms of hyperhidrosis and quality of life (QOL) in children with palmar hyperhidrosis (PH). Forty-five children ages 7-14 years with PH were evaluated 6 weeks after protocol(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the results of palmar and axillary hyperhidrosis treatment in males and females using low doses of oxybutynin. METHODS A retrospective analysis was conducted in 395 women and 170 men followed up in our service with complaint of palmar and axillary hyperhidrosis. RESULTS A total of 70% of patients in both groups presented partial or(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to analyze the effectiveness of oxybutynin for hyperhidrosis treatment in patients over 40 years. METHODS Eighty-seven patients aged over 40 years were divided into two groups. One group consisted of 48 (55.2%) patients aged between 40 and 49 years, and another was composed of 39 (44.8%) patients aged over 50 years (50 to 74 years).(More)
OBJECTIVES Primary hyperhidrosis usually affects the hands, armpits, feet and cranio-facial region. Sweating in other areas is common in secondary hyperhidrosis (after surgery or in specific clinical conditions). Oxybutynin has provided good results and is an alternative for treating hyperhidrosis at common sites. Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy of(More)
PURPOSE Palmar hyperhidrosis (PH) is a common illness that significantly impacts Quality of Life (QOL). Oxybutynin offers excellent short-term results, but long-term follow-up results are limited. We evaluated its effectiveness in a large group of patients who did not have surgery and who had at least 6 months of follow-up. METHODS Between September 2007(More)
BACKGROUND Iodine contrast medium (ICM) is considered gold standard in endovascular revascularization procedures. However, nephrotoxicity and hypersensitivity to ICM are causes that limit its indiscriminate use. Carbon dioxide (CO2) contrast angiography has been used as an alternative in patients with formal contraindication to ICM. However, no studies to(More)
BACKGROUND Studies have suggested that quality of life (QOL) evaluation before video-assisted thoracoscopic sympathectomy for patients with hyperhidrosis may serve as a predictive factor for positive postoperative outcomes. Our study aims to analyze if this tendency is also observed in patients treated with oxybutynin for palmar and axillary hyperhidrosis.(More)
BACKGROUND Aortic aneurysm and dissection are important causes of death in older people. Ruptured aneurysms show catastrophic fatality rates reaching near 80%. Few population-based mortality studies have been published in the world and none in Brazil. The objective of the present study was to use multiple-cause-of-death methodology in the analysis of(More)
