Firing properties of sudomotor neurones in hyperhidrosis and thermal sweating.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: Idiopathic palmar-plantar hyperhidrosis is characterized by excessive sweating of the palms and feet, and is commonly treated by transthoracic regional sympathicotomy. As the condition is believed to be due to a high sudomotor drive, we wanted to assess the firing properties of individual sudomotor neurones in this state of sympathoexcitation, extending our recent work on other pathologies associated with high sympathetic nerve activity. METHODS: Single-unit recordings were made ...
