The influence of hyperhidrosis on the stump in people with lower-limb amputation (English)
Abstract [da]

Baggrund: Stumpsved er et velkendt problem, som er til gene for protesebrugere på de nedre ekstremiteter. Problemet er ikke undersøgt i Danmark, derfor er formålet med dette studie, at undersøge hyppigheden og størrelsen på hyperhidrose. Yderligere undersøges det om faktorer som amputationsniveau, alder, tid siden amputation mm., kan have indflydelse på hyperhidrose, hos personer med amputation på de nedre ekstremiteter. Undersøgelserne udgøres af personer, der er bosat i Danmark.

Metode: Der blev anvendt et spørgeskema for at undersøge hyperhidrose og hvad der kan have indflydelse på dette. Spørgeskemaet indeholdte deskriptive spørgsmål, samt Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale (HDSS).

Resultat: 27 personer blev inkluderet i undersøgelsen. 66,7 % var forstyrret af stumpsved i deres daglige aktiviteter. Deltagerne svedte signifikant mere om sommeren, sammenlignet de andre sæsoner. 33,3 % havde problemer med at protesen ikke sad ordentligt fast, som følge af perspiration. Amputationsniveau, alder, tid siden amputation, BMI og aktivitetsniveau havde ingen indflydelse på hyperhidrose.

Konklusion: Stumpsved er et stort problem for amputerede personer i Danmark. Især under sommermånederne, hvor sved blev rapporteret som signifikant værre, sammenlignet med de andre sæsoner. Årsagerne til, at amputerede personer er påvirkede af hyperhidrose i hylstret, er endnu uklart. Yderligere forskning indenfor området er derfor påkrævet.

Abstract [en]

Background: Sweating of the stump is a well-known problem which affects lower limb prosthetic users. The problem has not been investigated in Denmark. Therefore the aim of this study is to investigate the prevalence of sweat related problems, plus whether reasons like level of amputation, age, time since amputation etc., may affect hyperhidrosis in the socket in people with lower-limp amputations. The investigation is carried out by people who live in Denmark.

Method: A questionnaire was used to investigate hyperhidrosis and the factors which may affect this. The questionnaire contained descriptive questions and the Hyperhidrosis Disease Severity Scale (HDSS).

Results: In the present study 27 participants were included. 66,7 % of participants were affected by hyperhidrosis in their daily activities. The participants sweat significantly more in the summer season compared to the others seasons. 33,3 % had problems with the prosthetic fit because of sweating. Level of amputation, age, time since amputation, BMI and level of activity had no influence on hyperhidrosis.

Conclusion: Sweating of the stump is a big problem for people with amputation in Denmark. Especially in the months of summer where sweating was reported as significantly worse when compared to other seasons. The reasons why people with amputation are affected by hyperhidrosis in the socket is still not clear. More research is therefore needed in this area.
