In brief: Not perfect

Ablation is an excellent treatment for certain arythmias but often requires a repeat procedure.
Sometimes there is more than one site that needs treatment as well. The procedure is not without some risk as well. Some pts have experienced perferations and high grade heart block requiring permanent pacemakers.
