Rezende RM, Luz FB - An Bras Dermatol (2014 Nov-Dec)

Bottom Line: Suction curettage is a dermatologic surgery technique for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis, which is becoming more popular.Suction-curettage of sweat glands is a minimally invasive surgical technique that is easy to perform, safe, has high rates of success and relatively few side-effects.It is generally well tolerated by patients and requires shorter time away from daily activities, when compared with other surgical modalities.

ABSTRACT

Unlabelled: Suction curettage is a dermatologic surgery technique for the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis, which is becoming more popular.

Objective: The purpose of this study is to describe the current technique of removal of axillary sweat glands, and evaluate its efficacy and safety.

Conclusion: Suction-curettage of sweat glands is a minimally invasive surgical technique that is easy to perform, safe, has high rates of success and relatively few side-effects. It is generally well tolerated by patients and requires shorter time away from daily activities, when compared with other surgical modalities.

Mentions: Thus, cutting instruments would be necessary when performing curettage of the deepdermis, in order to effectively remove the sweat glands (Figure 2).74,77 The use of different cannulas with sharpsurface has been described: liposuction cannulas, gynecologic cannulas, sharp spoons,cannulas specially designed for this purpose. However, the choice of the cannula to beused varies greatly among authors. In general, this choice is based on the surgeon'spersonal experience or on suggestions taken from isolated case reports.91
