In the group of 35 in-patients (30 female, 5 male) from the Department of Psychiatry, Medical Academy in Wrocław with depression resistant to antidepressive pharmacotherapy, the evaluation of ES therapy was made. The high efficacy (63% of full remissions) showed combined ES therapy with tricyclic antidepressants; only in 2 female and in 1 male patient there was no effect. At the same time neither serious side-effects nor complications were found, even in older patients.
