Catheter based cardioneuroablation is increasingly being utilized to improve outcomes in patients with vasovagal syncope and functional atrioventricular block. There is now increasing convergence amongst enthusiasts on its various aspects, including patient selection, technical steps, and procedural end-points. This pragmatic review aims to take the reader through a step-by-step approach to cardioneuroablation: we begin with a brief overview of the anatomy of intrinsic cardiac autonomic nervous system, before focusing on the indications, pre- and post-procedure management, necessary equipment, and its potential limitations.
