In brief: Which kind?

Some arrhythmias have definitive treatments (atrial flutter, re-entry tachycardias), others have helpful treatments (atrial fibrillation and monomorphic ventricular tachycardia), and others you can reduce the risk of side effects and risk of death.
See your electophysiologist (cardiologist with special training in arrhythmias) about yours.

In brief: Possibly

When an arrhythmia happens because of metabolic changes or changes in blood flow reversing the problem can "cure the arrhythmia.
" other arrhythmias can be ablated with catheters to prevent their recurrennce. However, arrhythmia that occurs becuase of degenerative changes or scarring often recur.
