Abstract
Axillary osmidrosis is a distressing and troublesome problem that causes a serious handicap in personal and social life. Many different methods have been introduced to treat axillary osmidrosis, however, they are often accompanied by marked complications. We analysed our experiences using endoscopy-assisted ultrasonic surgical aspiration in treating the axillary osmidrosis. From June 1998 to February 2004, a total of 896 patients (562 females, 334 males) were treated for axillary osmidrosis using endoscopy-assisted ultrasonic surgical aspiration. Our method was satisfactory in 815 patients (91%) and recurrence of odour occurred only in 29 (3.2%) patients. It also showed complications in 28 (3.1%) patients. Our method leaves a small inconspicuous scar and no contracture of the axillary skin after a short and comfortable recovery period and maintains normal axillary hair growth patterns. Axillary osmidrosis can be best treated by endoscopy-assisted ultrasonic surgical aspiration and this operation has many advantages with a high success rate, a low complication rate, and a rapid recovery period.
