Video-assisted thoracic sympathectomy with selective clamping system in Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital in Rome (treatment of hyperhidrosis, erythrophobia, Raynaud’s syndrome)
It’s called hyperhidrosis and it causes constant perspiration of the face, hands, feet, and armpits. While erythrophobia is the annoying “blushing” of the face, that feeling of rush of blood to the cheeks and “burning” of the face. Excessive and repeated facial blushing or excessive sweating, that affect 2% of the world population, may become a discomfort that disturbs everyday life and causes social and psychological distress. It is commonly assumed that it is provoked by anxiety, nervousness and emotional reactions, but it is caused by a slight alteration of the sympathetic nerve structure – in particular of the thoracic ganglions.
Both diseases depend on the thicker-than-normal “Sympathetic Trunks” and can be resolved with a small surgery, the only definitive treatment at the moment, and by specialists of Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital in Rome. Besides, careful follow-ups made with patients after two years, yield encouraging results: 97,6% is completely satisfied with the outcome and would repeat and recommend it.
Raynaud’s syndrome is characterized by episodic vascular spasm and digital ischemia occurring in response to cold (also by contact either with cold solids or liquids) or stress. The spasm blocks the flow of blood directed to fingers and toes. This causes change in color, numbness and even pain to the affected limbs.
Raynaud’s is often associated with hyperhidrosis and the selective clamping of the sympathetic nerve is the proven cure for the Primary Raynaud’s with a high success rate.
