In brief: Need more info

The mediastinum is the area around your heart.
Ablation means "destruction". The pros and cons depend on what is being destroyed (lymph nodes? Cancer?) and how (radiofrequency? Heat? Cold?) ask your doctor what the evidence is for the procedure, and what alternatives are possible. The mediastinum contains critical structures, so you don't want to risk any non-proven procedures.
