VATS R4 Sympathicotomy performed on all patients. Fluorescent thoracoscopy was used to identify the shifting mode of sympathetic ganglions.
Procedure: Near-Infrared Imaging Thoracoscopy
Sympathicotomy performed by near-infrared imaging thoracoscopy
- Anatomical variation of the sympathetic ganglions [ Time Frame: during surgery ]Record the spatial relationship between sympathetic ganglions and ribs, for example: T3/R4 represents the T3 sympathetic ganglion is located on the 4th rib.
- Improvement of palmar sweating [ Time Frame: 1 month after surgery ]Use questionnaire including 3 descriptive names of scale ( over dry, comfortable and wet) to record the surgical effect on palmar sweating.
- Degree of compensatory hyperhidrosis [ Time Frame: 1 month after surgery ]Use questionnaire including 4 descriptive names of scale ( none, mild, moderate and severe) to record the side effect (compensatory hyperhidrosis) of this surgery.
