Concerning Infarct size coefficient of variation, the general trend was that the intraluminal filament procedure, here chosen to be the reference category, resulted in lower percentages than did the other methods. The emboli and endothelin injection methods rendered significantly higher variability. Mortality rate was clearly influenced by choice of induction procedure, with higher percentages in the emboli studies, while the direct and endothelin procedures had decreased numbers of deaths in comparison to the intraluminal filament method. N = 469 and 351, respectively, in the two analyses/graphs. The bars represent 0.95 confidence intervals.
