Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.
To the Editor: We greatly appreciate the comments made by the colleagues from the CORE/PRIDE group with respect to our randomized controlled study in brief and ultrabrief pulse electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), and we welcome the opportunity to clarify a number of issues raised.
Differences in techniques between countries demonstrate that any concept of “the ultimate” ECT technique is still illusory. It is doubtful whether the European twice-weekly schedule reduces efficacy significantly compared to thrice-weekly sessions.
