  1. * Values are expressed as mean ± SD.
  2. † Values are expressed as median; 95%LCL-95%UCL.
  3. Values in parentheses are percentages.
  4. TO = tournique occlusion; ILS = intraluminal-left anterior descending shunt; ECG = electrocardiogram; SD = standard deviation; LCL = lower confidence limit; UCL = upper confidence limit.
