My watch records an ECG when I self choose and monitors pulse continuously. My heart artery was ablated. I don’t know what you mean by ablating wires and transmitters

After my last knee replacement (around 2017), I was diagnosed with A-Flutter & warned it could turn into A-Fib within a few years & it did. A-Flutter was cured with a single ablation (one wire or transmitter). I was told A-Fib can be caused by one or more of 64 wires or transmitters being faulty & very difficult to correct since it's hard to tell which wire to ablate. My cardiologist was not in favor of electrophysiology but I would recommend looking into it. I believe it addresses all wires & finds the faulty one/s & ablates them while leaving all others in tact.

Sorry for my terminology; I believe the wires in the heart's electrical system are called nodes & there are approximately 64 of them in the upper chambers of the heart. In the past it was difficult if not impossible to find & ablate the faulty one but I heard from a medical device rep that they now make a device that goes into all 64 nodes, discovers the faulty one & ablates only that one. I suggest you research electrophysiology if you still have issues. My own experience started with A-Flutter which required only one node being ablated but then turned to A-Fib. Good Luck !
