    Hypertension is due either to (1) neurogenic, (2) humoral or (3) mechanical factors, or a combination of 2 or 3 of these. When the neurogenic factor is dominant, extensive sympathectomy is effective in lowering blood pressure, reversing the disease process and modifying hyperreactivity. If...

    Severely symptomatic arterial insufficiency of an upper limb not suitable for revascularization is a difficult condition to manage. Thoracoscopic sympathectomy (TS) can be an effective procedure in this setting. Our experience with 18 consecutive thoracoscopic sympathectomy (TS) procedures over...
