BACKGROUND: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is a significant contemporary medical treatment modality for various mental disorders that have not responded to other treatments. YouTube is a valuable place to get health-related educational content that can have a big impact on patients' and their primary caregivers' behaviors and decisions. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study is to analyze the content of YouTube videos related to ECT to investigate the quality and reliability of videos as supportive information for patients and their primary caregivers...

Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), an implantable neurostimulator, provides a valuable long-term treatment option for patients with difficult-to-treat depression. It has been reported that previous response to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) might predict a better response to VNS and that VNS could reduce or eliminate the need for maintenance ECT in some patients. We present the case of a patient who received a total of more than 120 sessions of ECT over the course of 13 years because of a major depressive disorder, with favorable response but without achieving full remission...

INTRODUCTION: Benzodiazepines are considered to negatively affect seizure quality and duration during electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Several researchers have advocated the use of flumazenil, a competitive benzodiazepine receptor antagonist, for patients treated with benzodiazepines during ECT. However, clinical evidence regarding flumazenil use in ECT remains sparse. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of flumazenil on seizure duration and adverse effects. METHODS: All patients with depressive disorders, treated with flumazenil during a course of ECT in 2019 in a tertiary hospital, were identified through a retrospective chart review...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to describe current US electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) practice, identify practice changes over time, and inform discussion of practice. METHOD: Our anonymous survey was open on SurveyMonkey.com from January to June 2022. We sent invitations to providers identified using a Medicare provider database, an advanced PubMed search function, and professional group listservs. Participants were instructed to submit 1 survey per ECT site. We examined frequency of responses, tabulated individual comments, and grouped data for comparison...

Randall T Espinoza, Zarah Antongiorgi
Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists are an emerging class of medications transforming the management of diabetes mellitus and obesity, two highly prevalent and chronic medical conditions associated with significant morbidity and posing serious public health concerns. Although generally well tolerated and relatively safe to use, case reports of patients taking these medications while undergoing elective procedures with general anesthesia describe a potential heightened risk of regurgitation and pulmonary aspiration of gastric contents, deriving from the delayed gastric emptying effect of these agents...

Schizophrenia affects approximately 1% of the population worldwide. Multifactorial reasons, ranging from drug resistance to adverse effects of medications, have necessitated exploring further therapeutic options. Intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS) is a novel high-frequency form of transcranial magnetic stimulation, a safe procedure with minor adverse effects with faster and longer-lasting poststimulation effects with a potential role in treating symptoms; however, the exact target brain regions and symptoms are still controversial...

OBJECTIVES: The objective study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in a retrospective cohort of pediatric patients. METHODS: A single-site retrospective analysis was conducted of patients aged younger than 18 years who received ECT in a private university hospital from January 28, 2012 to April 8, 2023. Treatment efficacy and adverse events were determined retrospectively through review of the medical record. RESULTS: A total of 36 pediatric patients met the inclusion criteria...

OBJECTIVES: Neurostimulation interventions often face heightened barriers limiting patient access. The objective of this study is to examine different stakeholders' perceived barriers to using different neurostimulation interventions for depression. METHODS: We administered national surveys with an embedded experiment to 4 nationwide samples of psychiatrists (n = 505), people diagnosed with depression (n = 1050), caregivers of people with depression (n = 1026), and members of the general public (n = 1022)...

INTRODUCTION: Theoretically, the procedural risk of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) could be increased in the presence of undetected aneurysms due to the hemodynamic changes associated with ECT. However, empirical evidence is limited to few individual case reports and case series. METHODS: We performed a systematic review of available evidence on ECT treatment in patients with intracranial aneurysms and untreated aortic aneurysms and we retrospectively analyzed data from 252 consecutive patients referred for ECT at the Department of Psychiatry, Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics of Siegen Hospital, Germany, who received magnetic resonance angiographies and abdominal sonographies as part of their routine pre-ECT workup...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to compare the long-term effects of maintenance electroconvulsive therapy (M-ECT) with medication and medication only in patients with depression. METHODS: A randomized controlled trial of 1 year of M-ECT with medication or medication only investigated relapse/recurrence among 56 patients in remission after electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) for depression was conducted. The results of the first year are published already and showed a significant advantage of M-ECT with medication...

OBJECTIVES: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) can be life-saving in situations where patients are at risk of dying from severe manifestations of psychiatric illness. In some of these cases, patients are unwilling/unable to consent to ECT, and involuntary ECT is required. Such use of involuntary ECT varies substantially across European countries for unclear reasons. The aim of this study was to examine clinical and legal differences in this use of involuntary ECT across European countries...
