Silicone coated filaments rendered lower infarct size coefficient of variation than the uncoated filaments. Poly-L-Lysine coated and other filaments resulted in infarct size coefficients of variation comparable to the uncoated counterparts. No effect on Mortality rate from the choice of intraluminal filament type was seen. N = 383 and 265, respectively, in the two analyses/graphs. The bars represent 0.95 confidence intervals.
