Cardiovocal syndrome - Ortner syndrome

In 1897, Norbert Ortner described hoarseness caused by recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis in patients with a large left atrium due to mitral valve stenosis.


Since then, the term Ortner’s syndrome has been used to describe cardiovocal syndrome caused by left recurrent laryngeal nerve (LRLN) paralysis from various cardiac or aortic pathology.

Other causes include:
Pulmonary hypertension
Thoracic aortic aneurysms
Enlarged pulmonary artery
Aberrant subclavian artery syndrome
