Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Palmar hyperhidrosis is a disabling condition that manifests itself as excessive sweating of the hands. Although the exact cause is unknown, several medical and surgical therapies are available to treat it. Recent developments in surgical technique have made the less invasive thoracoscopic sympathectomy a viable alternative to the open sympathectomy for medically refractory cases. We believe that thoracoscopic sympathectomy is a safe and effective treatment for palmar hyperhidrosis.
