CT-guided therapy dries up embarrassing sweaty palms

Article

Sweaty hands can hinder a person's social or professional life. A minimally invasive procedure performed under CT fluoroscopy guidance provides a permanent solution to the embarrassing problem, according to Belgian radiologist Dr. Hugues Brat, who reported the study at the RSNA meeting.

Sweaty hands can hinder a person's social or professional life. A minimally invasive procedure performed under CT fluoroscopy guidance provides a permanent solution to the embarrassing problem, according to Belgian radiologist Dr. Hugues Brat, who reported the study at the RSNA meeting.

Researchers treated 50 consecutive patients with palmar hyperhidrosis using the procedure. Forty-seven patients (94%) showed sweat interruption immediately after intervention, while three required a second, successful, procedure. There were no significant complications, though 16 patients experienced chest pain or discomfort.
