    Giant Aortic Arch Aneurysm and Cardio-vocal Syndrome: Still An Open-surgery Indication
    (Elmer Press, 2011-12) Garrido, José María; Esteban, María; Lara, Juan; Rodríguez Vázquez, José Francisco; Verdugo López, Samuel; López Checa, Salvador
    The Cardio-vocal Syndrome (Ortner's syndrome) is described as hoarseness due to the left recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy, caused by a specific cardiovascular pathology. In this case, we present a patient with a giant aortic arch aneurysm with an initial clinical presentation of Cardio-vocal Syndrome. The conventional open-surgery, instead of endovascular approach, was useful to control the morbidity from the compressive effect of adjacent structures, also preventing the aortic rupture. We strongly recommend analyzing carefully the individual case and the clinical targets to resolve, because the new technologies are not always the most effective therapeutic response.
