We present the case of an 82-year-old man with 2 aortic aneurysms and multiple medical problems. The presentation describes the pre-electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) evaluations of the patient's problems and the measures used to control the possible dangerous fluctuations in blood pressure during the procedure. We hope that the successful outcome reported here will increase the likelihood that ECT will be considered for other patients with aortic aneurysms who have treatment-resistant depression.
