Sympathetic denervation of the upper limb improves forearm exercise performance and skeletal muscle bioenergetics

Abstract:

Background. Sympathetic activation may limit exercise performance by restraining muscle blood flow or by negatively affecting skeletal muscle metabolic behavior. To test this hypothesis we studied the effect of thoracoscopic sympathetic trunkotomy (TST) on forearm exercise duration, blood flow, and muscle bioenergetics in 13 patients with idiopathic palmar hyperhidrosis. Methods and Results. Heart rate and beat-by-beat mean arterial pressure (MAP) were recorded at rest and during right and le...
