In brief: No

Usually the pr inteval returns to normal and the delta wave is no longer seen.

In brief: No

The delta wave characteristic of WPW occurs because of a direct accessory pathway connection between the atria and ventricle (short pr because of early ventricular activation).
Disrupting this w ablation eliminates the delta wave.
