    Default annular repair

    Hi, Rebecca. I have been looking for references to this procedure and have not been able to find any supporting documentation for it. Could you also send this information to me? I would greatly appreciate it! My fax is 715/843-3729. Thanks so much for your help!

    Would it still be possible to have the AANS information faxed? I would love to have it. My fax # is 605.942.7505. Thanks!
