Figure 2 Schematic depiction of a stent. Stent structure is expressed as outer diameter of the fully expanded stent (ODES; mm), outer diameter of the compressed stent (ODCS; mm), outer diameter of the flare (ODF; mm), height of the flare [HF = (ODF-ODES)/2; mm], length of the flare (LF; mm), and taper angle of the flare (TAF = HF/LF; degree).
