    Objectives: Essential hyperhidrosis (EH) is defined as excessive functioning of the sudomotor sweat system. Definitive treatment of choice is video-assisted thoracoscopic sympathetic interruption. Success rates are high, but compensatory hyperhidrosis (CH) remains a troublesome side effect. The...

    Background: Thoracoscopic sympathectomy (TS) is an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis. Various surgical approaches are described in the literature. We describe the technique of thoracoscopic excision of the sympathetic chain done exclusively in children younger than 13 years. Methods: All...
