    Dear Editor,

    With interest we read the article by You et al. describing the identification of risk factors for aneurysm rupture and providing estimations for the likelihood of rupture in unruptured intracranial aneurysms [1]. However, we have concerns about the study design, the presented analysis and the conclusions regarding the predictors for aneurysm rupture.

    First, the authors used a study popul...
