Post ablation, 2nd degree AV Block
6 years ago, I had a Catheter Ablation to treat WPW.  One week to the day after my procedure, I began to experience 2nd Degree AV Block. Since then, I have many episodes of bradycardia etc.  Is it possible that the scar tissued formed as a result of the Ablation has caused this new problem.  My EP advised that what I have is referred to as Wekenbach (sp?) Type I, Morbitz.  He also said that this type of block is usually secondary to a different problem.  I am confused about the fact that my problem started immediately after my procedure.  Any thoughts?

For WPW they would ablate the "bundle of kent".  I don't know if this would be close to your AV node.  If they were close to your AV node then some damage may have occured.  It seems logical it would mimic type one 2nd degree AV block.
