Unhappy Toilet flange problem

I'm in the process of replacing my old toilet. When I pulled the toilet up the flange was broken. It was the type with a pvc "horn" that sits in the actual drain and a metal flange that sits on the slab. So, the part of the flange that is in the drain is glued in there and now has ragged edges where the ring has come completely off (with bits of pvc attached to it).

Are there any repair kits for this ( it was a 4" drain line, now with a little less than 4" due to the last flange being glued onto it)? Or, will this entail chipping away some of the slab to get at the drain line?

Short of breaking up the concrete, which is the only 'right' way to do it, you can use a repair flange of sorts... There is a type that goes down in the old pipe with an expandable washer that makes the seal, and then you mount it to the floor just like normal and reseat the toilet...
