In Japan, they fly a flag called the nobori flag. These flags are long and thin, and they are mounted on a pole with a cross rod to keep the fabric from curling up and hiding the field. The key outcome measure was the combined incidence of cardiac mortality, and stroke. Secondary end points included subscales of MACCEs and stent thrombosis rates at 1 year
A total of 2083 patients were included in the analysis, 1125 of whom were treated with BES in the NOBORI registry and 858 of whom received ZES in the CONSTANT registry. Medical results were compared using propensity score matching.
In addition to being a prospective, open-label, multi-center registry, the CONSTANT project also included a single-center randomised trial. Patients undergoing PCI of a single lesion in a single conduit were included. Specifically, Resolute integrity DES was used.
The key outcome measure was a combination of cardiac mortality, myocardial infarction, clinically motivated target lesion revascularization, and stroke. Deaths were categorised as either cardiac or non-cardiac, with the latter category included deaths for which the former could not be determined.
A Q wave MI was defined as an increase in creatine kinase enzyme concentrations beyond twice the normal upper limit, whereas a non-Q wave MI was described as an increase in creatine kinase enzyme concentrations below the normal upper limit.
SPSS and R were used for statistical analysis. We used the student unpaired t-test to do comparisons between continuous variables and report the results as mean standard deviation. The chi-square test was used to determine statistical significance between categorical variables provided as counts and percentages.
Digital printing or screen printing are the two most common methods for producing printed flags. Modern flags are printed using a process called digital print. An inkjet printer and specialised inks are used in this method to produce full-color designs. Fabrics can be printed on either immediately or on paper first.
As digital printing of images onto personalised flags becomes increasingly commonplace, the traditional screen print method of flag production is losing ground. As long as the design is straightforward, it is still used for mass production of the same item.
Flags that are sewn are typically created by the appliqué or embroidery techniques. The finished applique bespoke flag resembles a quilt in that its design elements are patch worked together from individual pieces of fabric. Nylon is commonly used in our production.
In embroidery, the fabric is stitched with multiple strands of different coloured thread. Beautiful in their own right, custom embroidered flags have all the aesthetic appeal of applique flags while also being capable of handling much more intricate designs. Both look great when the flag or banner is displayed indoors or on a parade float and the viewer can get a good look at it.
