Palmar hyperhidrosis, where the hands sweat profusely and uncontrollably, results in an unnecessary thoracoscopy with sympathectomy. It is a complex and risky procedure in which a surgeon makes an incision under the patient's armpit, inserts a surgical probe through the incision, collapses the patient's lung to gain access to the spinal area, and then severs or clamps a nerve near the spine that controls perspiration of the hands. This surgery can produce serious complications, including bleeding in the chest cavity, pneumothorax (a condition that impedes breathing), infection, significant pain, and greatly increased sweating in other parts of the body.
