After doing radiofrequency ablation, would traces of WPW still be visible on your ecg?

In brief: Wpw
If an ablation for WPW is successful the classic changes of WPW should not be present.
There might be changes which mimic them however produced by the ablation damage but they shouldn't be early repolarization.

In brief: Usually not
The rf ablation will "fry" the pre-excitation pathway which will remove the pre-excitation seen on the ecg.
I would recommend speaking more with your cardiologist about your concerns.
