    The discussion focused primarily on:
    (1) the likelihood of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients after successful ablation;
    (2) discontinuation of medication and implementation of monitoring;
    (3) the intensity of monitoring and whether it really works; and
    (4) the ultimate decision made by both the physician and the patient.
