Percent Solid Area

The reference area is the full cylindrical side surface area for the stent expanded to the labeled diameter (∏ X outside diameter X length at labeled diameter). The solid area is estimated by CAD software. The solid area is determined on unexpanded stents and assumed not to change significantly during expansion. The percent solid area is the ratio of the solid area to the reference area and is reported as a percentage.
