In an urban environment, green roofs represent a sustainable solution for mitigating stormwater volumes and hydrograph peaks. So far, many literature studies have investigated the hydraulic efficiency and the subsurface runoff coefficient of green roofs, showing their strong variability according to several factors, including the characteristics of storm(More)
Atherosclerosis is a systemic disease affecting quality and length of life. Endovascular revascularization can be used to improve quality of life. The benefit is greatest in patients with subclavian, renal, or iliac artery symptomatic disease. The advent of stents improves the initial technical success rates of angioplasty to more than 90% in most(More)
The development of surgical techniques depends on the concomitant development of imaging techniques. Imaging with ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is evolving at rapid pace. The basic need for treatment is mainly important for the endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) that requires information about many(More)
The increasing imperviousness of urban areas reduces the infiltration and evapotranspiration capacity of urban catchments and results in increased runoff. In the last few decades, several solutions and techniques have been proposed to prevent such impacts by restoring the hydrological cycle. A limiting factor in spreading the use of such systems is the lack(More)
