Brief Summary:
The standard treatment for palmar hyperhidrosis is bilateral sequential thoracic sympathectomy. High rates of compensatory sweating due to the surgical procedure are described in the literature. In the search for a reduction in this side effect, it is possible that unilateral sympathectomy in the dominant side obtains acceptable results and leads to less compensatory sweating with improvement of the quality of life. The aim of this study it to compare the intensity of compensatory sweating due to the standard treatment, that is, bilateral sequential videothoracoscopic sympathectomy in relation to unilateral thoracic sympathectomy on the dominant side.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of sweating intensity [ Time Frame: Change from baseline sweating to 6 months after surgery ]
    To utilize the HDSS questionnaire to assessment of sweating intensity change in patients with palmar hyperhidrosis treated by bilateral sequential thoracic sympathectomy


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of sweating intensity [ Time Frame: Change from baseline sweating to 6 months after sympathectomy ]
    To utilize the HDSS questionnaire to assessment of sweating intensity change in patients with palmar hyperhidrosis submitted to unilateral sympathectomy on the dominant (right) side

  2. Change of sweating intensity [ Time Frame: Change from baseline sweating to 6 months after surgery ]
    To utilize the HDSS questionnaire to assessment of sweating intensity change in patients submitted to contralateral (left side) sympathectomy after unilateral sympathectomy on the dominant side


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Change of Quality of life [ Time Frame: Change from baseline quality of life to 6 months after surgery ]
    To utilize the HidroQOL questionnaire to evaluate the change in quality of life
