|Title:||Does electrode placement predict time to rehospitalization?|

|Publication Title:||Journal of ECT|
|Abstract:||We sought to determine whether electrode placement influenced time to rehospitalization. A retrospective review of an elderly, depressed population that had received bitemporal, bifrontal or 6 x RUL ECT was examined to determine time to rehospitalization. Bitemporal ECT was associated with a statistically significant reduction in the number of (P = 0.026) and time to (P = 0.025), rehospitalization. Bitemporal ECT may be a preferred electrode placement, not only because of its demonstrated effectiveness across a range of diagnoses, but for its previously undocumented capacity to delay rehospitalization.|
