Abstract

There are cases in the literature describing the use of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in patients with intracerebral aneurysms. We report the clinical course of a 60-year-old woman with a history of a recently ruptured intracerebral aneurysm and placement of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt that was successfully treated with ECT for major depressive disorder. Beta blockade with esmolol 20-50 mg was used to maintain her blood pressure, which ranged from 100/63 to 170/94 mm Hg. Propofol was used for anesthesia. There were no vascular complications secondary to the ECT procedure.
