Genome-wide Analysis of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms of Brain Arteriovenous Malformations and Cerebral Aneurysm
Test single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP's) in ruptured and unruptured aneurysm tissue to identify a genetic difference between the two types of aneurysms; and to test SNP's in arteriovenous malformation tissue to identify a genetic link.
