The image here is my all time favourite fish hook injury. I called the Surgeon to ask him to review this one and he was somewhat dismissive. After a more prolonged explanation he begrudgingly agreed to look at it. Several hours of operation later we had the hook out and a lot of structures explored!
Now, there are few issues that divide my colleagues more than fish hook removal techniques.
Some like to push, some pull, some use a complex string tension technique. Then there is the large piece of metal that you yank…. Out it pops.
So I want to know – what is your preferred technique for pulling out barbed hooks?
Let me know on the comments, or link to a video / diagram
Do you have a trick to share? Casey
