Table 1 Overview of the dimensions of the size of the deployment system: Sheath diameter refers to the maximum diameter of the stent deployment sheath, sheath length refers to the length of the maximum diameter, which is frequently limited to the most distal part where the stent is located in the deployment system, shaft diameter refers to the diameter of the proximal part of the deployment system, stent diameter refers to the maximum stent diameter possible with the mentioned deployment system size, stent length was kept 30 mm for all systems. Outer sheath and shaft dimensions of the evaluated stent models
