Abstract

A new technique of balloon-assisted laparoscopic lumbar sympathectomy is described and the results of the initial three cases are described. The procedure is technically straightforward and was accomplished without any complications. It should be compared with other techniques of lumbar sympathectomy in comparative trials; however, this early experience is most encouraging.
