During your treatment for excessive sweating, you may hear your surgeon talk about Kuntz nerves. To learn more about these particular nerves and how they may play a role in the recurrence of hyperhidrosis, keep reading.
What Are Kuntz Nerves?
The Kuntz nerves are part of the first thoracic nerve in the torso. These nerves branch out from the main sympathetic nerve trunk and display a significant amount of variation from person to person. The actual function of the Kuntz nerves is not fully understood; in fact, they are only present in approximately 70-80% of the population. However, these nerves may play a significant role in the recurrence of hyperhidrosis symptoms following sympathetic treatment, and a preventative approach is taken in individuals in whom Kuntz nerves are identified.
How Are They Connected To Hyperhidrosis?
When you elect to undergo treatment for hyperhidrosis, your surgeon will cut or clamp the sympathetic nerve to prevent further symptoms of hand, underarm, or facial sweating or blushing. It is believed that the Kuntz nerves, however, may take over the function of the debilitated sympathetic nerve over time, which can result in a recurrence of hyperhidrosis symptoms and the necessitation of further treatment. In order to prevent this occurrence, your surgeon will divide your Kuntz nerves if they are present to avoid the return of hyperhidrosis after your initial surgery. It takes an experienced ETS surgeon to recognize and divide the Kuntz nerves properly, as many less-experienced surgeons may not be able to locate or recognize them.
