摘要

Five patients with cardiovascular disease presented with hoarseness due to left recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy. One had secundum atrial septal defect, one had ventricular septal defect, two had mitral stenosis and the other had aortic aneurysm. All except the patient with aortic aneurysm had pulmonary artery dilatation and moderate to severe pulmonary hypertension. Four patients' hoarseness resolved after successful interventional therapy. As for the patient with the aortic aneurysm, hoarseness persisted; the patient died before surgery. We postulate that the dilated pulmonary artery or aortic arch was responsible for the compression of the left recurrent laryngeal nerve.
