  • But even in the most experienced hands RLN palsy occurs occasionally, with an average frequency below 1% of nerves at risk due to variability in RLNs anatomy and difficulties in nerve identification by visual or palpation control in challenging conditions (e.g. advanced thyroid malignancy or reoperative thyroid surgery). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In patients presenting with persistent hoarseness due to left recurrent laryngeal nerve (LRLN) palsy and an abnormal left hilum on chest radiographs, a major cause is bronchogenic carcinoma. (bjcardio.co.uk)
  • In each case, the LRLN palsy was in fact due to direct compression of the nerve by an aortic aneurysm. (bjcardio.co.uk)
