  • [Title] Predicting improvement after surgery for palmar hyperhidrosis.
  • OBJECTIVES: Endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy (ETS) is a surgical procedure used to improve Quality of Life (QoL) in patients with treatment resistant palmar hyperhidrosis (PHH).
  • The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that low preoperative scores on The Everyday Life Questionnaire (EDLQ) would predict QoL improvement after surgery.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Pre- and post-operative QoL scores from a series of 30 consecutive patients who underwent ETS at our institution were analyzed.
  • RESULTS: Preoperative QoL scores was a significant predictor of post-operative improvement across all dimensions covered by the questionnaire.
  • CONCLUSION: Preoperative low QoL can be used as a guide in selecting patients with most improved QoL after ETS.
