    I am having a flashback to 1985 where we removed an eroded Angelchik. Nice video.

    nice case, but there are some wasted moves towards the end.

    A worthy pick of the month. I recently saw a similar procedure done in Israel with similarly challenging adhesions.

    Interesting to see this device for those of us that have not seen it before. The video was of ok quality.

    Interesting video. I wish I'd seen it a few years ago. I once referred a patient to another surgeon for removal of an Angelchik since I'd never seen one put in. On the other hand, those adhesions did not look like much fun.
