We report two patients with confirmed aortic aneurysm who successfully received ECT. A review of the literature on ECT finds 13 prior case descriptions. Based on the reported cases and literature review, we conclude that ECT in patients with aortic aneurysm is a safe and effective procedure. Although patients may benefit from additional medication for blood pressure control, the evidence suggests that they may be safely treated without invasive monitoring.
