Abstract

Intracranial vascular malformations may potentially increase the risk of complications in electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), although there is only limited case report literature substantiating this. We describe 3 patients with cavernous hemangiomas who received safe, uncomplicated ECT. We provide recommendations for ECT practice in such patients.
