[Electro-convulsive treatment of elderly patients with both behavioral problems and dementia].

[Article in Dutch]

Abstract

Behavioral problems in elderly patients with dementia cannot always be managed with pharmacological or non-pharmacological treatment. We report on three therapy-resistant patients suffering from both behavioral problems and dementia whose condition finally improved after being given electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Literature data relating to the safety and efficacy of ECT administered to patients with both behavioral problems and dementia are discussed.
