  1. Note: Statistical powers of the Cox model were calculated using XLSTAT (Addinsoft, Inc., New York, NY, USA) and presented as follows: a= 0.965; b= 0.978; c= 0.966; d= 0.939; e= 0.984; f= 0.104; g= 0.624; and h= 0.932. N.A. = not available
  2. A systemic review 7 indicated a variety of CH incidences among different sympathectomy levels as follows: T2–3, 57%; T2–4, 38%; and T3–4, 6%. Therefore, we categorized the sympathectomy levels as follows: T2–3 = 1; T2–4 = 2; and T3–4 = 3
