The Effectiveness of Local Surgical Technique in Treatment of Axillary Bromhidrosis.

Open Access Maced J Med Sci 2019 Jan 29;7(2):187-191. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

University of Rome G. Marconi, Rome Italy.

Background: Up to now, surgical excision of apocrine glands still has been a method that yields high treatment results and low rate of odour recurrent for patients, but many people worry about some serious complications that have been observed postoperatively, such as hematoma and skin necrosis. These prolong wound healing, leading to unsightly scars in the axillary fossae.

J Dermatolog Treat 2018 Feb 31;29(1):102-104. Epub 2017 May 31.

a Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery , Shanghai 9th People's Hospital, Shanghai JiaoTong University School of Medicine , Shanghai , P.R. China.
