Left recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis was first described in 1897 by Ortner in a patient with mitral valve disease. However, this paralysis has also been attributed to other cardiovascular pathologies, such as thoracic aortic aneurysms. In 1971, Parodi introduced the endoluminal technique by inserting endovascular prostheses for the treatment of vascular aneurysms. The authors present a case of acute dysphonia following left recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis, confirmed by laryngoscopy, in…

Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm as A Cause of Ortner's Syndrome - A Case Series.

The experience with seven cases of Ortners syndrome due to thoracic aortic aneurysm with compression of the left recurrent laryngeal nerve and resultant hoarseness is reported.

Aortic arch aneurysm presenting as ortner's syndrome

A case of 45 year old presented with hoarseness and dyspnea who was confirmed to have aortic arch aneurysm is reported, which resolved completely after transthoracic endovascular aorta repair (TEVAR).

Ortner Syndrome due to Concomitant Mitral Stenosis and Bronchiectasis

The case presented here describes a 35-year old female with hoarseness of voice in association with mitral stenosis and bronchiectasis, and presence of dual pathology contributed to the overall pathophysiology of the disease, and made its management difficult.

[Hybrid operation for a distal aortic arch aneurysm causing left recurrent nerve palsy - Ortner's syndrome].

Aneursms of the distal aortic have to be considered as a rare cause of a left-sided recurrent nerve palsy thanks to recent advances in endovascular therapy combined with supraaotic vascular reconstruction.

Mycotic thoracoabdominal aneurysms.

It is believed that infection of the native aorta and super-infection of an aortic graft are differing disease entities and as such should be managed differently, and TEVAR has reduced the mortality associated with open repair to as low as 11% to 15% (12,13).

A patient with giant cell arteritis with initial presentation of Ortner’s syndrome is described, which is described as Ortner's syndrome or cardiovocal syndrome, which was first reported by Ortner in 1897.

An uncommon cause of Ortner syndrome.

A case of Ortner syndrome caused by penetrating atherosclerotic ulcers of the thoracic aorta is presented.

Luetic aortopathy: Revisited

The aortic aneurysm was concluded to be of syphilitic origin in a 38-year-old male, who presented with a large pulsatile swelling on the left side of the anterior chest wall of 4 months’ duration with a gradual increase in size.

Hoarseness subsequent to cardiovascular surgery, intervention, maneuver and endotracheal intubation: the so-called iatrogenic Ortner's (cardiovocal) syndrome.

The recurrent laryngeal nerve was often injured following cardiovascular surgery, intervention, maneuver and endotracheal intubation, and the so-called "iatrogenic Ortner's (cardiovocal) syndrome" was actually an immediate vocal cord complication following cardiovascular manipulation.



Resolution of Hoarseness after Endovascular Repair of Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm: A Case of Ortner's Syndrome

This case demonstrates for the first time the reversal of Ortner's syndrome after endoluminal aneurysm repair.

Laryngeal paralysis as the presenting sign of aortic trauma.

Results indicate that laryngeal paralysis following severe trauma can be a very early sign of aortic injury and requires prompt and thorough investigation.

Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve Paralysis during Transvenous Insertion of a Permanent Endocardial Pacemaker

Physicians should be aware of the possibility that associated acute paralysis of the vocal cord may occur after transvenous insertion of an endocardial pacemaker.

Endovascular stent-grafting is feasible as one treatment option for thoracic aortic aneurysm as well as a minimally invasive alternative to open surgery in 1 and 3 year follow-up period.

Transfemoral intraluminal graft implantation for abdominal aortic aneurysms

Experiments showed that when a balloon-expandable stent was sutured to the partially overlapping ends of a tubular, knitted Dacron graft, friction seals were created which fixed the ends of the graft to the vessel wall, which excludes the aneurysm from circulation and allows normal flow through the graft lumen.
