Abstract

The objective was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) for treatment of a variety of sympathetic disorders, including hyperhidrosis, splanchnic pain, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, and Raynaud upper extremity ischemia. Sixty-three ETS procedures were performed in 34 patients at the University of Maryland Medical System betweenMarch 1992 and August 1999 (14 male patients, 20 female patients; mean age22 years). The indications for surgery were hyperhidrosis in 26 patients, upper extremity ischemia in 3 patients, splanchnic pain and reflex sympathetic dystrophy in 2 patients each, and facial blushing in 1 patient. Preoperative symptoms resolved completely or improved significantly in 97.1% (33/34) of patients. One patient with left reflex sympathetic dystrophy had symptoms that recurred shortly after surgery. There were no major complications; one patient with hyperhidrosis reported significant compensatory hyperhidrosis, These findings suggest that ETS is a safe and effective procedure for treatment of a variety of sympathetic disorders. Its application for hyperhidrosis is very effective, and its treatment of splanchnic pain, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, and Raynaud syndrome ore rewarding. With increasing experience, ETS should become established in the repertoire of the thoracic surgeon.
