Vasovagal syncope (VVS) is the most common type of syncope. Although it is not related to an increase in mortality, recurrent syncope episodes may be disabling and reduce the quality of life. There are no optimal treatment strategies currently available, especially for the cardioinhibitory type of VVS. Cardioneuroablation (CNA) is a relatively novel technique that aims to eliminate vagal efferent output during VVS. The objective of this review was to explore the potential role of CNA strategy in syncope guidelines.

Keywords: Bradycardia, fat pads, ganglionated plexi; parasympathetic; vagal ganglia.
