Surgical treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis: a study comparing liposuction cannulas with a suction-curettage cannula.


BACKGROUND:Suction-curettage is a minimally invasive surgical approach for the treatment of focal axillary hyperhidrosis. Studies comparing the efficacy of different surgical cannulas are missing. Therefore, we gravimetrically compared a specially designed cannula versus 2 standard liposuction cannulas. METHODS:Axillary suction-curettage was performed in 42 patients (n = 42). Fourteen patients (n = 14) were operated with a 1-hole liposuction cannula, 14 patients (n = 14) with a larger 3-hole liposuction cannula, and 14 (n = 14) with a sharp suction-curettage cannula. Sweat rates in mg/min were measured by gravimetry before and 6 months after surgery. RESULTS:Sweat rate in the 1-hole liposuction cannula group was significantly reduced from 57.65 +/- 5.85 mg/min to 32.58 +/- 4.64 mg/min (P < 0.001), corresponding to a reduction of 44.15%. Patients operated with the larger 3-hole liposuction cannula showed a significant reduction of sweat rate from 63.95 +/- 8.25 mg/min to 33.14 +/- 6.25 mg/min (P < 0.001), corresponding to a reduction of 49.19%. The largest reduction of sweat rates (63.07%) was achieved with the suction-curettage cannula (61.85 +/- 9.03 mg/min to 21.27 +/- 4.42 mg/min (P < 0.001). No severe side effects were observed. CONCLUSION:Due to the higher efficacy we recommend performing suction-curettage with a sharp suction-curettage cannula.

  • Enhanced survival using the distally based sural artery interpolation flap.

    abstract::The reverse sural artery flap is frequently used for reconstruction of the distal third of the leg, ankle, and heel. The major disadvantage of the flap is compression of the pedicle within the subcutaneous tunnel and venous congestion. Others have cited a decrease in this problem by harvesting a midline cuff of gastro...
