Abstract

Endoscopic sympathetic block as a treatment for primary hyperhidrosis is associated with certain sequelae. The reported occurrence of side effects still varies in the literature. As the majority of patients describe sequelae after sympathetic surgery, the frequency and importance of these persisting changes are still underestimated. Patient's informed consent should include and define side effects like gustatory sweating, olfactory sweating and bradycardia as likely, and compensatory sweating as obligatory.
