Mania in bipolar affective disorder can be a serious condition which is usually treated with antipsychotics and mood stabilizers. A systematic search was carried out to review the literature concerning the efficacy of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) in the treatment of mania. All available studies showed a marked effect of ECT with response/remission rates between 56 and 100%. The randomized controlled trials which compared ECT to pharmacotherapy found that ECT was superior to treatment with psychotropic drugs.
