Possible connection between inop left phrenic nerve and my heart?

Question:  Can the fact that the left phrenic nerve was damaged and the left diaphragm rendered inoperative have a relationship to my heart which is not acting normally.  The heart condition has been the same for years and I believe that the two are related in some way to the  trauma that occured when I was in an exploding aircraft and a subsequent ejection at 350mph in Vietnam.  A recent myocardial perfusion exercise was done in June and an ejection factor on the left ventricular was 44%.  It has been 40 - 44 for years.  Also again noted was a T wave inversion and frequent VPC's before and after exercise. I would like to know if there could be a connection between the inop phrenic nerve on the left side and the condition of my heart.
