  • [Title] Bilateral single-port thoracoscopic sympathectomy with the VasoView device in the treatment of palmar and axillary hyperhidrosis.
  • Primary or essential hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterized by excessive sweating beyond physiological needs.
  • It is a common disease (with an incidence of up to 2.8%) that causes intense discomfort for patients.
  • Video-assisted thoracoscopic bilateral sympathectomy is an effective surgical treatment with high success rates and improvement in quality of life.
  • In the last decade, the advantages of a single-port thoracoscopic approach have become clear.
  • Problems with intraoperative bleeding management have been solved by using thoracoscopes with integrated electrocautery scissors.
  • In this report, we describe successful transaxillary bilateral single-port thoracoscopic T2-T5 sympathectomy with the VasoView┬« device in three patients with palmar and axillary hyperhidrosis.
  • The VasoView┬« device, with its integrated electrocautery scissors, was originally designed for endoscopic vessel harvesting in coronary artery bypass surgery, but it has proven highly effective for single-port thoracoscopic sympathectomy.
