We studied the results outcomes of thoracoscopic sympathectomy in 107 patients with distal lesions of lower-limb arteries. The best results in the early postoperative period were observed in patients with Raynaud’s disease and syndrome, reaching 100% efficacy. Due to implementation of novelties, we managed to preserve the efficiency of sympathectomy in 90% of patients with this pathology in the remote period. In patients with obliterating endarteritis and atherosclerosis, the efficacy of the operation was regarded as a possibility to preserve the supporting function of the extremity. In the postoperative period this goal was achieved in 73.2% and 62.5% of patients, respectively, while in the remote period in 62% and 25%, respectively.

KEY WORDS: thoracosopic sympathectomy, Raynaud’s disease, Raynaud’s syndrome, endarteritis obliterans, atherosclerosis.
