Abstract

A 64-year-old man admitted for treatment of a thoracic aneurysm had experienced severe back pain 10 years earlier after falling heavily on his forearms. From the night following the fall, hoarseness and pleuritic chest wall pain continued for about 3 months. Preoperative imaging showed a chronic dissecting aneurysm near the aortic isthmus. The patient's history suggested that the fall 10 years before surgery was the most likely cause.
