Surgeon's choice: There are several options, but as others have mentioned, most surgeons usually will have a preference... Asking your surgeon about their choice would be a great place to start.
If i may, i also suggest you read "fits like a glove" @ http://drmarkgalland.Com/new-article-fits-like-a-glove/ for more information.
