|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Hyperhidrosis||Procedure: Staged ETS||Not Applicable|
This is a pilot study that investigates the efficacy of video-assisted endoscopic sympathicotomy from the level of T3 to T12 on combined palmar and plantar hyperhidrosis.
Ablation of ascending sympathetic fibers would help alleviating both types of hyperhidrosis in a single setting.

Experimental: Staged ETS
Video-assisted endoscopic sympathicotomy from level of T3 to level of T12 on one side
Procedure: Staged ETS
Thoracoscopic approach of sympathetic ganglia T3-T12 on one side, retraction of the diaphragm and lung laterally to expose the ganglia then ablation of each ganglion using electrocauterization.
- Change from baseline in severity of hyperhidrosis on visual analogue scale at 24 months [ Time Frame: 24 months ]decrease in the severity of hyperhidrosis, both palmar and plantar, according to visual analogue scale
