This study surveyed outcomes of sympathotomy for hyperhidrosis more than 1 year postoperatively. 77% reported clinically bothersome compensatory sweating, although the incidence decreased over time to 35% at 5 years and thereafter. Predictors of bothersome compensatory sweating included multiple sites of sweating and R2/R3 sympathotomy (rather than R4/R5).
