The influence of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) on triggering and perpetuation of atrial fibrillation (AF) is well established. Ganglionated plexi (GP) ablation achieves autonomic denervation by affecting both the parasympathetic and sympathetic components of the ANS. An anatomic approach for GP ablation at relevant atrial sites appears to be safe, and improves the results of PV isolation in patients with paroxysmal and persistent AF. GP ablation can be accomplished endocardially or epicardially, ie, during the maze procedure or thoracoscopic approaches. Further experience is needed to assess the clinical value of this promising technique.
