  • [Title] [Trans-areola single port endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy for the treatment of palmar hyperhidrosis: a new surgical approach].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the cosmetic effects and safety profiles of trans-areola single port endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy.
  • METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted for 45 males and 7 females with palmar hyperhidrosis undergoing trans-areola single port endoscopic thoracic bilateral sympathectomy during April and June 2011.
  • RESULTS: All operations were successfully performed without severe morbidity and mortality.
  • No conversion to open technique was necessary.
  • The mean unilateral operative duration was 6 minutes (range: 5 - 8).
  • The time was calculated from the time of skin incision to that of dressing application over wound.
  • The mean hospitalization duration was 2.2 days (range: 2 - 3).
  • The mean follow-up period was 2.8 months (range: 1 - 7).
  • All patients achieved excellent cosmetic effects.
  • No incision scar was found.
  • CONCLUSION: Trans-areola single port endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy is a safe and effective therapeutic procedure for primary palmar hyperhidrosis.
  • The incision is undetectable with excellent cosmetic effects.
  • The trans-areola route is a new ideal and promising approach for endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy.
