In brief: Maybe

If there is persistent tachycardia after an ablation either there is another arrhythmia focus or a recurrence of the same focus.
Repeat ep testing might be needed after the holter/event monitor documents the tachycardia.

In brief: Yes

It can happen often.
That means you need more cardiac mapping and burn the extra source of electrical firing in the heart. Sometimes source is missed during the mapping.
