  • PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the benefit of thoracic and lumbar computed tomographic-assisted sympathicolysis (CTSy) in patients with primary, focal hyperhidrosis.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thoracic and/or lumbar CTSy was conducted on 101 patients (average age 37.5 ± 15.5 years) with primary, focal hyperhidrosis of the hands and/or feet, who experienced persistent symptoms after all conservative treatment options had been exhausted.
  • The patients were divided into groups with palmar, palmoplantar and plantar hyperhidrosis.
  • The patients evaluated the severity of their symptoms prior to the intervention and 2 days, 6 months and 12 months after the intervention using a Dermatology Quality of Life Index (DLQI) and side effects.
  • RESULTS: The performed interventions led to a statistically significant decrease in the preinterventional severity of symptoms after the intervention (2 days), and 6 and 12 months after CTSy in the palmar, palmoplantar and plantar (p < 0.01) group.
  • The technical success rate of CTSy was 100 %.
  • No major complications occurred.
  • Patients reported compensatory perspiration over the course of treatment, neuralgia and paraesthesia as side effects.
  • The differentiated assessment of the strength of perspiration of the hands and feet showed statistically significant differences between the foot and hand region, whereby the decrease in sweat secretion of the feet was more significant and more lasting (p < 0.02).
  • CONCLUSION: After conservative measures have been exhausted, CT-assisted sympathicolysis represents a therapeutic option with minimal side effects for patients with primary, focal hyperhidrosis.
