Clip-on ETS
( Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy )

Clip-on ETS is the name given to the surgery method. Clip; is the name of the material used. Its quality is titanium. It does not cause any harm to the body. It does not cause a problem when you have a tomography or MRI. After the clips are put in, they do not move easily. ETS is the abbreviation of surgical method. Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS) is a closed operation of the thoracic cavity sympathectomy. Sympathectomy has recently been performed with titanium clips. Sympathectomy is the operation of cutting, ligating or burning the sympathetic nerve. You just do it where you aim. So it only affects where you do it. It does not damage other parts. The reoperation of the clipped sympathetic nerve is below 10% after the clip is removed. It doesn't come back to its original state. It takes a long time. For this reason, patients who will have a sympathectomy should think carefully. Recycling does not meet expectations.
