Introduction Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is an important and effective treatment for depression. However, research on course trajectories of depressive symptoms during ECT is limited. Insight into putative differences in speed of response of depressive symptom dimensions may enable clinicians to optimally inform patients and their relatives. Therefore, we aim to examine course trajectories of depressive symptom dimensions in depressed older persons during ECT. Methods Data were derived from ...

Background Severe depression is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Neural network dysfunction may contribute to disease mechanisms underlying different clinical subtypes. Here, we apply resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging based measures of brain connectivity to investigate network dysfunction in severely depressed in-patients with and without psychotic symptoms. Methods A cohort study was performed at two sites. Older patients with major depressive disorder with or wit...

Abstract Background There is growing evidence that inflammatory and cortisol dysregulation are underlying pathophysiological mechanisms in the aetiology of major depressive disorder, particularly in younger adults. However, findings of biological disturbances in late-life depression have been divergent, probably due to the even greater heterogeneity of depression in older adults with aging processes influencing biological factors. Using empirically derived subtypes may enable the identification ...

Objective: To assess the pain prevalence, pain intensity, and pain medication use in older patients with a diagnosed subtype of dementia, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), or subjective cognitive impairment (SCI). Design: Cross-sectional. Setting: Outpatient memory clinics. Subjects: In total, 759 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), vascular dementia, mixed AD and vascular pathology (MD), frontotemporal dementia, dementia with Lewy Bodies, MCI, or SCI. Methods: Self-reported presence and inte...

Objectives: Apathy, a lack of motivation, is frequently seen in older individuals, with and without depression, with substantial impact on quality of life. This prospective cohort study of patients with severe late-life depression treated with electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) aims to study the course of apathy and the predictive value of vascular burden and in particular white matter hyperintensities on apathy course. Methods: Information on apathy (defined by a score of >13 on the Apathy Scale),...

Objectives: Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is the most effective treatment for depression; however, consensus on predictors for ECT outcome is lacking. We aim to examine the relation between pre-ECT salivary cortisol values and clinical characteristics and ECT outcome in depressed, older persons. Methods: A total of 102 inpatients meeting DSM-IV criteria for depression and referred for ECT were selected. Salivary cortisol was assessed at five time points during the day, providing insight into t...

Apathy, a common and disabling behavioural syndrome in older persons, has been associated with impaired physical performance and executive dysfunction. Both are fall risk factors and they share pathophysiological pathway. We cross-sectionally examined the association between apathy and recurrent falling (≥2 falls in the past 12 months) and number of falls in the past 12 months in 243 outpatients aged ≥65 years with ≥3 fall risk-factors visiting a fall-clinic after a fall. We calculated Odds Rati...

Objectives: To establish the course of metabolic syndrome (MS) rates in older patients with severe mental illness (SMI) after 5-year follow-up and evaluate whether MS at baseline is associated with mortality or diabetes at follow-up. Methods: Patients (>60 years of age) with SMI (N = 100) were included at a specialized mental health outpatient clinic. Metabolic parameters were collected from patients' medical files at baseline and after 5-year follow-up. Results: Follow-up data were available of...

Recently, the number of studies focusing on pain in dementia has increased considerably. Still, little attention has been paid to the influence of the neuropathology of different dementia subtypes on pain experience. In 2003, a review identified several studies that indicated a relation between dementia subtype and pain experience. Now, ten years later, an update is warranted. We conducted a systematic review to identify studies that assessed pain experience and dementia subtypes by searching Pu...
