It : It is possible that one can have recurrent problems after an ablation. Best to see a cardiologist who specializes in electrophysiology. He would be able to arrange monitoring which will capture any episodes of rapid heart rhythms, so that appropriate treatment can be undertaken.

He : He might have had an incomplete ablation of the accelerated site of conduction or he may have a secondary focci not detected on the first study. He definitely needs to have eps re-evaluation.
