Abstract:

We report on an interesting case of necessity using an innovative electrode placement in a 20year-old female with major depressive disorder MOD who received two series of ECT treatments in 2014 and 2015. In 2013, following a suicide attempt by jumping out of a moving vehicle and sustaining severe cranial fractures, she underwent left frontotemporo-parietal craniectomy and construction cranioplasty with titanium mesh-plating. She was treated with mldline electrode placement for ECT, as the mesh-plating barrier would affect traditional techniques. We found improvement in the patient following treatment with quality average EEG results over the course of treatment. We hypothesize that the cortical midllne structures CMS could play an important role as targets of ECT treatment and improvement in this patient.
