PURPOSE Neurosurgical and endovascular treatment of fragile and recurrent aneurysms of the non-branching portion of the internal carotid artery, known as blister-like aneurysms, is challenging. The aim of this paper is to describe two cases of ruptured blister-like aneurysms of the internal carotid artery and of the vertebral artery at the origin of the(More)
Endovascular treatment (ET) showed to be safe in acute stroke, but its superiority over intravenous thrombolysis is debated. As ET is rapidly evolving, it is not clear which role it may deserve in the future of stoke treatments. Based on an observational design, a treatment registry allows to study a broad range of patients, turning into a powerful tool for(More)

It is well known in forensic genetics that mutations on STR loci need not lead to genetic inconsistencies between the genotypes of parents and children (cf. [3,6,1]). In this article we look at a generalization of this phenomenon of "hidden" mutations: we investigate the probability with which a mutation of d repeat units appears to be one of k<d repeat(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Fenestration of the vertebrobasilar junction (VBJ) is a rare condition which may be associated with the presence of aneurysms. The endovascular approach is usually the first-line treatment in these cases since the location of the aneurysm may be unsuitable for a surgical approach. This anatomical variation may even influence the(More)
In recent years, the use of DNA data for personal identification has become a crucial feature for forensic applications such as disaster victim identification (DVI). Computational methods to cope with these kinds of problems must be designed to handle large scale events with a high number of victims, obtaining likelihood ratios and posterior odds with(More)
