The cardiovocal syndrome

Ugeskr Læger 2018;180:V06180443

Ortner’s syndrome, also known as the cardiovocal syndrome, refers to left recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy and hereby hoarseness due to cardiovascular disease. The palsy arises from compression of the nerve, as it passes between the aortic arch and the pulmonary artery.
