Abstract

ECT is often a necessary treatment for severe psychiatric disorders in patients with medical or neurologic comorbidity. Although the available data consist largely of cases and case series, ECT is effective in treating psychopathology despite the comorbidity. With appropriate precautions and monitoring during and after ECT, complications can be minimized.
