Irregular Heartbeat, Abnormal EKG in adult who had Kawasaki Disease As a Child

My son is 45 years old and has had episodes of chest pain since he was about 18.  He had Kawasaki Disease when he was 8 years old, and he has been checked for heart damage, but nothing definitive has been found recently or in the past. His symptoms now are: irregular heartbeat and abnormal EKG.  He lives in Tokyo, Japan and he did see a doctor there that specializes in the treatment of Kawaski disease, but he has had no answers for his problems. He will be in the US in Dec., March and June, and could see a specialist in the US.  What type of specialist should he see?  Is there any help for irregular heartbeat?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Kawasaki Disease is a condition that causes inflammation in the walls of small and medium sized arteries throughout the body, including the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart muscle. Based on the type of irregular rhythm, therapy can be planned. He will need to consult a cardiologist for the assessment of the irregular heartbeat.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
