Table 2 QCA assessment of coronary arteries

From: Comparative vascular responses three months after paclitaxel and everolimus-eluting stent implantation in streptozotocin-induced diabetic porcine coronary arteries

In stent Xience V Taxus p-value
Pre-Stent Mean Lumen Diameter 2.68 ± 0.19 2.79 ± 0.19 -
Balloon to artery ratio 1.16 ± 0.03* 1.10 ± 0.03 0.002
MLD, mm 2.40 ± 0.30 2.26 ± 0.50 0.25
Diameter stenosis, % 11.2 ± 9.8 19.3 ± 14.7 0.12
Binary restenosis, % 0 8.3 N/A
Late Loss, mm 0.28 ± 0.30 0.55 ± 0.53 0.058
  1. MLD – Minimal lumen diameter. n = 11 for Xience V, n = 11 for Taxus.
  2. * p < 0.05 vs. Taxus.
