The ADO II is available in eight sizes with four waist diameters (3, 4, 5, and 6 mm) and there are two length options for each waist diameter (4 or 6 mm). In our case, [3] the device length was 4 mm and the waist diameter was 6 mm (with a circumference of 18.84 mm). However, the height of the mechanical valve was standard and was 5 mm, and its sewing cuff(More)
