In a Danish study conducted at the Aarhus University Hospital, 90% of the patients undergoing ETS for underarm sweating, reported the onset of compensatory sweating, half of whom were forced to change their clothes during the day because of it.
During ETS surgery, surgeons attempt to interrupt the transmission of nerve signals to the sweat glands and to thus prevent these nerve signals from "turning on" the sweat glands.
The most invasive of these is endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS). ETS is considered a last resort because it frequently causes serious, irreversible compensatory sweating (excessive sweating on large areas of the body or all over) as well as other dibilitating effects such as extreme hypotension, arrhythmia, and heat intolerance. In fact, most physicians do not recommend ETS surgery because of the serious negative side effects of the procedure.
