Without any way of knowing when the treatment will work and when it won't, its difficult to give recomendations.

I don't think the treatment should be denied to anybody for whom it has worked previously.

However, recomending it to new patients should be based on a statistical cost / benefit ratio. It is arguable that previous analysis for ECT are somewhat flawed.

If a drug worked miraculously in 1 yet killed 99 out of 100, it would be hard to recomend (dispite the rave reviews from that 1).
