Abstract Sympathectomy has been used as treatment for several different cardiac conditions. These include classic angina pectoris, Prinzmetal's angina, paroxysmal atrial tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia, and long QT syndrome. To understand the rationale of such treatment, the innervation of the human heart is reviewed with discussion of the cardiac plexus and coronary innervation. Results in published studies are summarized and discussed.
