Keith G Rasmussen
The recently published PRIDE study (prolonging remission in the depressed elderly) constitutes an important contribution to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) technique, from the standpoint of both the index course to treat depressive symptoms and the post-remission continuation period to prevent relapse. This study was probably the last large, National Institute of Mental Health-funded, multisite ECT technical study for some time to come, so extracting clinically relevant recommendations is worthwhile. In this commentary, the author discusses evidence from this trial relevant to several important clinical index and continuation ECT technical issues and elaborates several unanswered questions deserving further consideration...

OBJECTIVES: The risk of cognitive impairment is a concern for patients with major depressive disorder receiving electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Here, we evaluate the acute, short-term and long-term effects of ECT on tests of processing speed, executive function, memory, and attention. METHODS: Forty-four patients with major depressive disorder receiving ECT (61% right unilateral, 39% mixed right unilateral-bitemporal, left unilateral, and/or bitemporal lead placement) underwent a cognitive battery prior to ECT (T1), after 2 sessions (T2), and at the end of the index (T3)...

BACKGROUND: Bupropion is associated with a dose-dependent increased risk of seizures. Use of concomitant bupropion and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) remains controversial because of an increased risk of prolonged seizures. This is the first systematic evaluation of the effect of bupropion on ECT. METHODS: A case group (n = 119), patients treated with concomitant ECT and bupropion, was compared with an age and gender frequency-matched control group (n = 261), treated with only ECT...

OBJECTIVES: The aims of this study were to investigate the social and economic factors that contribute to global variability in electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) utilization and to contrast these to the factors associated with antidepressant medication rates. METHODS: Rates of ECT and antidepressant utilization across nations and data on health, social, and economic indices were obtained from multiple international organizations including the World Health Organization and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, as well as from the published literature...

PURPOSE: We evaluated the effects of a single loading dose of remifentanil (1 μg/kg) administered as an adjunct to sevoflurane, on the duration of seizure activity, recovery times, and hemodynamic profiles, during electroconvulsive therapy. METHODS: The patients were randomly allocated to receive sevoflurane-saline (Group SS) or sevoflurane-remifentanil (Group SR). Sevoflurane (8%) was initiated for anesthesia induction in both groups until loss of consciousness was achieved...

Although a typical course of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) consists of 6 to 12 treatments, remission of depression has rarely been reported after a single treatment. We present the case of a 25-year-old woman hospitalized for a major depressive episode and suicidality, in the context of bipolar 1 disorder, whose symptoms fully remitted with 1 ECT. We also review the literature on rapid response to ECT.

OBJECTIVES: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) results in significant cardiovascular changes. The acute cardiac autonomic changes during ECT remain unexplored. The primary objective of this study was to compare autonomic dysfunction with and without atropine premedication during ECT and secondarily to evaluate dysautonomia across psychiatric diagnoses before and after ECT. METHODS: In this crossover study, 41 psychiatric patients were monitored during 82 ECT sessions...

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is rarely, if ever, considered for the treatment of severe anorexia nervosa (AN) or other eating disorders comorbid with an affective illness. Mood disorders are common in these patients, and psychotropic medications, although frequently used, have limited evidence of benefit in AN or copresenting depressive symptoms. Even when the illness is life threatening, ECT as a treatment may be overlooked. We present a case of an adolescent girl with severe AN and comorbid major depressive disorder with suicidality...

OBJECTIVE: This randomized controlled pilot study examines the differences in response to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) as defined by an improvement of depressive symptoms between ketamine and methohexital as the primary anesthetic agent. Adverse effects and cognitive tolerability were also examined. METHODS: Subjects undergoing ECT for unipolar or bipolar depression were randomized to receive ketamine or methohexital as the anesthetic agent. Primary outcome measure includes the Hamilton rating scale for depression (17-item)...
