Table 2: Angiographic and procedural characteristics. Values are mean ± standard deviation, median (inter-quartile range), or number (%). BMS = Bare-Metal Stent, DES = Drug-Eluting Stent, LCA = left coronary artery, LM = Left Main, PCI = percutaneous coronary intervention, RCA = right coronary artery, and TIMI = Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction.
