The sample size estimation in Statistical Analysis Part should be:

From previous studies, we hypothesized that the rate of a 1-year TLF would be 7% in the systematic two-stent technique group and 14% in the provisional stenting group. Accordingly, a total sample size of 600 is needed to detect a power of 0.8 (Type Ⅱ error = 0.2, = 0.05, 2-tailed). Because of the considerable uncertainty, the enrolment is extended to 660 patients (10% increment).
