Ok, I watched a few different videos on YouTube of installations of an LGX device. So, the first one was a female doctor… She measured nine proximal and 14 distal… she used a 21 cm device with no rear tips… Second was a male doctor… He measured nine proximal and 12 distal and used an 18 cm device with three rear tips… so, I might be hyper obsessing a little bit but, these are two very different measuring techniques… I guess it truly does depend on the doctor…
Implanted October 2019 Dr. Kramer lgx 18 cm +2 rear tips. Preop at 6.75 post op 5.25... awaiting revision… Implanted for possibility of having our first child.

On my revision. Went from 19 cm titan total cylinder length to 20 cm ams total cylinder length.

Titan cylinders were 18 plus 1 rte.
Ams cylinder 18 plus 2 rte.

I believe titan has 5 cm non expanding part in the Cruz
Ams has 4.5 cm non expanding part in Cruz

So with titan I had 6 non expanding. Ams 6.5 non expanding. So I gained 1 cm but only .5 of additional inflatable length.

Revision was 1 year after initial implant. Size for both is at a wood ruler bone press right at 6.75 length. So same for both. No real difference.
18 cm plus 1 rte titan installed March 2019. Revision March 2020 by Dr. Andrew Todd, Richmond KY. He replaced the titan with an AMS 700 LGX 18 cm cylinder plus 2 rte for 20 cm total length.
