      Background Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is associated with volumetric enlargements of corticolimbic brain regions. However, the pattern of whole-brain structural alterations following ECT remains unresolved. Here, we ...
    • The effect of pulse width on subjective memory impairment and remission rate 6 months after electroconvulsive therapy 

      Tornhamre, Elsa; Ekman, Carl Johan; Hammar, Åsa; Landén, Mikael; Lundberg, Johan; Nordanskog, Pia; Nordenskjöld, Axel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Objectives: The aim of this study was to compare the 0.5-millisecond pulse width with broader brief width stimulus and ultrabrief pulse width stimulus in respect to rates of subjective memory impairment and remission 6 ...
    • Electroconvulsive therapy in bipolar depression - effectiveness and prognostic factors 

      Popiolek, Katarzyna; Bejerot, Susanne; Brus, Ole; Hammar, Åsa; Landén, Mikael; Lundberg, Johan M.; Nordanskog, Pia; Nordenskjöld, Axel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Objective: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is used in patients with severe forms of bipolar depression. ECT is effective but not all patients respond. The aim of this study was to determine prognostic factors for response ...
    • Electroconvulsive Therapy in Depression: Improvement in Quality of Life Depending on Age and Sex 

      Güney, Pelin; Ekman, Carl Johan; Hammar, Åsa; Heintz, Emelie; Landén, Mikael; Lundberg, Johan; Nordanskog, Pia; Nordenskjöld, Axel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Objectives It is uncertain if there are variations in the improvement of quality in life between sexes and age groups after electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). The aim of this study was to investigate how health-related ...
    • Elevated body weight modulates subcortical volume change and associated clinical response following electroconvulsive therapy

      Background: Obesity is a frequent somatic comorbidity of major depression, and it has been associated with worse clinical outcomes and brain structural abnormalities. Converging evidence suggests that electroconvulsive ...
    • The incidence of dental fracturing in electroconvulsive therapy in Sweden 

      Göterfelt, Linda; Ekman, Carl Johan; Hammar, Åsa; Landén, Mikael; Lundberg, Johan; Nordanskog, Pia; Nordenskjöld, Axel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Objectives: One adverse effect of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is dental fracture; thus, a bite guard and muscle relaxants are used to prevent it. Earlier research reported varying rates of dental fracture, but there ...
