Catheter Ablation as a Treatment for

Anyone have personal expeirence with this?  Vasovagal Syncope. A suddel loss of BP causing the person for faint.     My son in his mid 30s has developed this condition .   All the tests have been done on his heart and brain, blood pressure meds, compression clothing, diet etc .


  He had another incident and trip to the ER.   While the fainting is not life threatening, the resultant fall and striking your head can be.   He had a large number of stitches once over this. 


A co-worker had this ablation procedure done 20 years ago and has not had an incident since.   I was wondering if anyone here  had this procedure or has a loved one who has.
