Unsatisfactory results obtained with medical therapy and dual-chamber pacing for prevention of recurrent neurocardiogenic syncope necessitated the development of new treatment modalities. Tilt-training, a novel treatment for recurrent neurocardiogenic syncope based on exercise sessions with prolonged upright posture (either oil a tilt-table or standing on foot against a wall), was shown to be effective in preventing the recurrence of neurocardiogenic syncope. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the long-term beneficial effects of a transient tilt training program lasting 2 months.
