PSVT ablation procedure and stroke risk

I have had PSVT for 20 years.  3 years ago I was diagnosed with 100% blocked left carotid artery.  I had a TIA when this was discovered, but no problems since.  I am on Plavix, 2 aspirin a day, and simvastatin.

My doctor wants to do an ablation for the PSVT.  I am worried that this may cause a stroke due to the carotid artery blockage.  I'm not sure what to do.
