BackgroundPrimary hyperhidrosis is a disorder that is characterized by excessive sweating in disproportion to that required for thermoregulation. In most cases, this is aggravated by emotional factors and by heat. Hyperhidrosis can be seen in the palms of the hands, armpits, soles of the feet and face. The principal characteristic of this disease is the intense discomfort of patients, which affects their social and professional life. Treatment modalities include topical application of aluminum… Expand
VIDEO-ASSISTED THORACOSCOPIC BILATERAL SYMPATHECTOMY FOR PRIMARY HYPERHIDROSIS IN ZAGAZIG UNIVERSITY HOSPITALS
TLDR
Video-assisted thoracoscopic bilateral sympathectomy is a rapid, reliable and safe technique that presents important advantages over the staged procedures because it can be done in a single surgical procedure, requires placement of only two thoracic ports, avoiding the third port. Expand
Single-Port Bilateral Thoracscopic Dorsal Sympathectmy for Primary Hyperhidrosis: Long-Term Outcome
TLDR
Evaluating the long-term outcomes of single port bilateralthoracoscopic dorsal sympathectomy in treatment of primary hyperhidrosis of the palm and axilla concluded that single port provides less postoperative pain, safety, short operative time, and quick method for the treatment ofPrimary hyperhydrosis in comparison to two or three ports approaches.

Thoracoscopic excision versus radiofrequency ablation of the sympathetic chain as a treatment for palmar hyperhidrosis: comparative study
TLDR
Thoracoscopic excision is more effective than radiofrequency ablation of the sympathetic chain in improving palmar hyperhidrosis, however, it has a higher risk of developing compensatoryhyperhidrosis. Expand
Uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic drainless sympathectomy for palmar and palmo-plantar hyperhidrosis: an institutional experience
TLDR
The palmo-plantar type benefits similarly to the palmar type in terms of comparable postoperative QoL and CH incidence, and there was no significant difference between both groups in neither operative time, recurrence, nor CH. Expand
A Rare Case of Lateral Pectoral Nerve Injury Associated with Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy for Primary Hyperhidrosis
TLDR
A case of isolated damage to a muscle branch of the lateral pectoral nerve in a patient who underwent endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy to treat hyperhidrosis is reported, the first case to report an isolated lateral pECToral nerve injury after endoscopicThoracic surgery. Expand
Optimal targeting of sympathetic chain levels for treatment of palmar hyperhidrosis: an updated systematic review
TLDR
Cumulative data suggest that ETS is a safe, effective, and reproducible procedure with a high degree of patient satisfaction and currently available evidence suggests that T2-free ETS may reduce the incidence of compensatory hyperhidrosis without compromising success rates and safety. Expand
A new surgical procedure for palmar hyperhidrosis: is it possible to perform endoscopic sympathectomy under deep sedation without intubation?
TLDR
ETS with flexible thoracoscopy under deep sedation without intubation is a safe and effective method for endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy of palmar hyperhidrosis. Expand

TLDR
Radiofrequency ablation significantly decreased hyperhidrosis, but it had a lower success rate than surgical sympathectomy and the groups were similar regarding patient satisfaction and compensatoryhyperhidrosis. Expand
Surgery for Palmar Hyperhidrosis: Patient Selection and Extent of Surgery
TLDR
It is shown that single resection should be preferred to multiple levels of resection, and in cases of isolated palmar hyperhidrosis, T3 is the level of choice, although T4 may be also reasonable. Expand
Safety of Radiofrequency Ablation of Thoracic T2 and T3 Sympathectomy in Palmar Hyperhidrosis: A Case Report
TLDR
This study has been the first clinical case report complicated by the development of a contraction of the flexor muscles of the right hand with severe pain and congestion in palmar hyperhidrosis. Expand

Thoracoscopic sympathectomy for upper limb hyperhidrosis: looking for the right operation.
TLDR
Although selective division of the rami communicantes results in a significant decrease in the rate of disturbing side effects, it also leads to recurrences that are usually not observed at that level in patients treated with the conventional technique, therefore other means of achieving the ideal operation should be explored. Expand
Endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy in the treatment of primary hyperhidrosis. A review of 290 sympathectomies.
TLDR
Endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy is an effective form of treatment for palmar primary hyperhidrosis, is associated with a low morbidity, and can be performed as an ambulatory procedure. Expand
Prevention of compensatory hyperhidrosis after thoracoscopic sympathectomy for hyperhidrosis
TLDR
Limited thoracoscopic sympathectomy at the level of the third ganglion is effective and seems to prevent compensatory hyperhidrosis. Expand

TLDR
Twenty-five patients were highly satisfied with the result of endoscopic sympathectomy, which is considered the appropriate minor procedure for the treatment of upper limb hyperhidrosis, causing minimal discomfort to the patient and almost invisible scars. Expand
Thoracoscopic sympathectomy for palmar hyperhidrosis. Ablate or resect?
TLDR
Resection yields superior results, yet the majority of surgeons ablate, probably because it is easier, requires a shorter operating time, leads to fewer cases of Horner's syndrome, and because resympathectomy eventually overcomes initial failure. Expand

Minimizing endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy for primary palmar hyperhidrosis: guided by palmar skin temperature and laser Doppler blood flow.
TLDR
Intraoperative monitoring of temperature and blood flow may be a useful tool in establishing a kind of standardized reference for finding the correct target level in each case of sympathectomy for palmar hyperhidrosis. Expand
Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy for palmar hyperhidrosis: a randomized control trial comparing T3 and T2-4 ablation.
TLDR
The single-level sympathetic denervation under thoracoscopy is a safe and effective procedure to treat primary palmar hyperhidrosis and reduces the incidence of severe compensatory sweating postoperatively without compromising the patient's satisfaction. Expand
Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy for Hyperhidrosis: Experience With Both Cauterization and Clamping Methods
TLDR
Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy with clamping appears to be at least as safe and effective as earlier cauterization techniques, with the potential advantage of reversibility in those patients unhappy with the outcome. Expand
Video assistance reduces complication rate of thoracoscopic sympathicotomy for hyperhidrosis.
TLDR
In performing thoracoscopic sympathicotomy for excessive upper-limb hyperhidrosis, a significant decrease in the incidence of Horner's syndrome, rhinitis, and gustatory sweating is observed when the procedure was guided by video imaging. Expand
