BACKGROUND: A left recurrent nerve palsy caused by left atrium hypertrophy, dilatation of the left pulmonary artery or a thoracic aortic arch aneurysma is named Ortner's syndrome. CASE REPORT: We report the case of a 84-year old male patient with a posttraumatic aneurysm of the distal aortic arch known for 20 years, which became symptomatic by new presentation of an acute hoarseness caused by a left sided recurrent nerve palsy due to rapid aneurysma expansion. Because of the aneurysma localization, the advanced age and the patient?s morbidity he was treated by a hybrid procedure with an extrathoracic reconstruction of the supraaortic arteries by a right to left carotid-carotid bypass and transposition of the left subclavian artery followed by endovascular implantation of aortic stent grafts for aneurysma exclusion...

Endocardial ventricular mapping of 21 ventricular tachyardias (VT) in 17 patients was performed using electrode catheters. Activation at multiple left and right ventricular sites was utilized to determine the site of origin of the VT. Eleven VT had a left bundle branch block pattern (VT-LBBB) and 10 VT had right bundle branch block pattern (VT-RBBB). In all VT-RBBB the earliest site of activation was in the LV or septum. In VT-LBBB the earliest site was RV (4/11), LV (5/11) and septum (2/11). All ventricular tachycardias with QRS less than 140 msec arose in the septum...
