catheter ablation in patient with cctga

My son was diagnosed with CCTGA in December and with WPW several weeks ago.  He has episodes of SVT associated with his WPW several times a day with some lasting up to two hours.  He is currently on Verapamil 180 mg until the ablation and it seems to be helping although not totally stopping the SVT episodes.   Is there a higher risk of complications in the ablation procedure in kids with CCTGA?  He has also recently started to sleep frequently which is unusual for him.  He is 15 and sleeps at least 12 hours or more at night and falls asleep for an hour or two after school everyday.  Could this be related to the frequent episodes related to his WPW?
