The autonomic nervous system is known to play a significant role in the genesis and maintenance of arrhythmias. Neuromodulation, mostly designed to increase the parasympathetic tone and suppress the sympathetic tone, has become an emerging therapeutic strategy for the treatment of arrhythmias. Emerging therapeutic approaches include cervical vagal stimulation, transcutaneous auricular vagal stimulation, baroreceptor activation therapy spinal cord stimulation, ganglionated plexi ablation, renal… CONTINUE READING
