I had a replacement mechanical valve fitted in January 2003, and all looked well until April and then I started getting severe attacks of Palpitations.From April until end of June I had 6 attacks and the only way they would stop was by stopping and restarting my heart.In that time I was treated with different Beta blockers which did not work and I am currently trying Frecainide.Can anyone tell me, the fact I have a mechanical valve could I still be considered for Abalation. Much obliged Diane Williams
