Ventricular arrhythmias occur predominantly in patients with structural heart disease. The most common substrate is scarring due to ischemic heart disease. We present an uncommon cause of ventricular tachycardia due to excessive right coronary artery stretch in a patient with a giant pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta years after aortic root repair.
