Do you think it should be mandatory to receive screenings such as echos, holters, stress tests, etc. after a cardiac ablation especially for athletes? My 14 year old son received cardiac ablation for SVT's Feb 2010 which the doctor states was successful. However, as a nerveous analytical parent, it seems that screenings should be done after the ablation. His cardiologist states that it's not necessary based solely on the two week post exam with a 2 second EKG. It seems that it is acceptable to wait until the patient complaints, passes out or dies during games or practices instead of performing some kind of endurance testing beforehand. My son plays basketball and is now joining a team that will be doing endurance training for the next couple of months. Is'nt this something that the medical community should be concerned about? You know, kids are dropping dead on courts and fields too frequently. Please provide comments on this. Just want to make sure that I fully safegaurd my son.
