Stefan with Galen's heart.

Heart Extraction is a method of killing that involves the forced removal of someone's heart. This is a method which can be used to kill supernatural species (as well as any human) such as vampires, werewolves, hybrids and witches. The most common way this method is used usually involves a supernatural being with enhanced strength, such as a vampire or a hybrid, who uses that strength to punch through another supernatural beings' chest or back. The person then grabs the heart in their fist and firmly rips it out, killing them instantly.

More recently, witches such as Finn and Dahlia have shown to use magic to similarly extracts hearts with their telekinesis.

However, in The Originals episode Wheel Inside the Wheel, Esther stated that Klaus had killed her by strangling her to death.
