Has anyone had a cardiac ablation with a mechanical valve?
Can anyone help me with the above question?  Briefly, I am 52 yr old female with history rheumatic fever, two mitral valve replacements and repair of a paravalvular leak.  I have a history of atrial fibrillation, cardiac caths, electrical cardioversions since 1978.  My most recent heart surgery was 1986 when my pig valve went to the end of its life, (which was seven years)I.  I now have a mechanical St Jude mechanical valve.  I have dealt with a fib off and on.  I now have a pacemaker and recently had 3 electrical cardioversions.  My meds are cardizem, propafanone, warfarin, benicar for the heart rate.  My ep doctor suggested an ablation, but says its a 50-50 chance it will get better.  I am a little or should I say extremely concerned considering all the heart damage experienced throughout the years.  They say it's complicated and think maybe it would be a last resort.  Anyone out there can you respond.  I would appreciate any help
